Dickinson Photo on Texas Phonebook
The Southwestern Consolidated Phone Directory has a Texas Longhorn cow and calf on the cover. Much of the Southwestern system is in Texas, so a Texas Longhorn cover was not an odd thing. However, looking closer, the background Fall foliage is hardwood cherry, walnut, hickory and maple trees unlike a normal Texas scene. The selection was from photos available from Dickinson Cattle Co Inc of Barnesville, Ohio. Why not use Texas Longhorn photos for a Southwestern Phone book with an Ohio scene? It makes sense.
Several million of these books were printed and distributed to everyone with a phone. The image of fat pretty Texas Longhorns was spread across a whole chunk of the cattle country.
As a DCCI service to printers like Southwest, free stock photos are available at no charge for calendars, post cards, tourist promotions, magazine covers, etc. The ranch site link is http://www.longhorntours.com/Promo_Photos/ The only request is to acknowledge DCCI as the source of these high res graphics. There are 113 professional photos to select from. Help yourself!
Registered Texas Longhorns since 1967
