Text: [front] Don't Mark photo! [back] C.M. Waters operated "Oklahoma Feed Yard" in Liberal in 1913 and "Oklahoma Wagon Yard" in 1914-1915-1916-1917-1918-1919-1920. His name then drops out of the old telephone directories so he must have left Liberal (or) perhaps, died. His wagon yard address was listed as "South Liberal" or South of Rock Island tracks. The street at lower right is believed to be (Liberal Iron and Metal) St. so the barn was about where lights Sporting Goods or Maliney Cleaners is in 1960.
