Production Photos

Here's an interesting look at the inner workings of Texans Inc., with most of these photos taken for the purpose of illustrating their various stages of production. The pictures were most likely taken in the early 1970s, the majority in the new Bangs plant with others in Del Rio. The photographs were transfered to digital from slides that are in the collection of Pete and Evangeline Eads.
