    This film from the Keeland Collection begins with footage of local women modeling dresses in a fashion show. Following are scenes of the operations at Port City Stockyards and W.D. Gunnels Pecan Farm. The producer of this film, Jim W. Keeland, was a photographer and videographer in the Houston area for sixty years. He took photographs and films for Houston's NBC affiliate, KPRC-TV, from 1948 until 1961, worked for the Houston Post from 1951 to 1982 as a printer, and was a freelance photographer of agricultural subjects.
