Equal before the Lens: Jno. Trlica's Photographs of Granger, Texas (Charles and Elizabeth Prothro Texas Photography Series)
by Barbara McCandless
Publisher's Description
"Barbara McCandless records here the events in the lives of the residents of Granger, Texas, through the work of Jno. P. Trlica, the community's only full-time photographer from 1924 to 1955."--the publisher. As a first-generation Czech Texan, Trlica drew his clientele from all the cultural and racial subgroups of Granger, and their portraits speak vividly of life in a typical small Texas town. Not only the town's cotton farmers and businessmen, but also the blacks and Hispanics who worked for them, patronized his photography studio. His poignant photographs reveal intense changes in economic and social life of small towns of the day.
