Many of the postcards show the rapid growth in Texas oil towns. Take, for example, the 26 real photographic postcards that show the growth of Borger, TX. Borger grew quickly in the s when the railroad completed a spur to the town. It then built a post office, a school, a hotel, a jail and added telephone service and electricity.
The town attracted not only oilmen and roughnecks, but also criminals and persons of ill repute. Holmes, was assassinated outside of his home on September 18, The Rangers closed down all the saloons and brothels and encouraged many criminals to leave town.
Borger then settled down and became a major shipping area for produce and petroleum products. In addition, a number of the postcard views of the oil boom document vividly the effects of fires from oil wells and storage tanks that were hit by lightning or were set off by a spark when natural gas was unexpectedly found while drilling for oil. The oil-related postcards were made available through funding from the Texas State Library and Archives Commission as part of the TexTreasures program.
