Dr Rodgers Searcy AR prized bull historic picture

That is the information on the back of the above photo. Searcy residents know the man in the picture, Dr. Porter Rodgers, a popular physician in Searcy AR.  He had cattle land and it looks as if he enjoyed his cattle and posed fully dressed up in suit and tie for this photo.  We can only guess at the date but it would have been some years ago because Dr. Rodgers has been passed on for several years.

But the picture was impressive and was loaned to me by Sherry Quattlebaum Person and is worth sharing.

Hello Barbara - an interesting pose.  Admittedly, I hail more from an area that would be considered as a city than more rural or farm-like, would this be an example of a gentleman farmer?  Why am I having a flashback moment to Green Acres? And where is the Eva Gabor equivalent in this photo?

I'm fascinated in local history in my area here in Sacramento.  I can imagine that photo is valuable to many in Searcy.
