DESCRIPTION   Interior view of a company, possibly owned by the Ocher family, that sold seed, grain, and Case farm implements, in Corpus Christi, Texas. A man in a business suit sits at a desk surrounded by bags of seed and grain. The man is either "Cheesy" Blasingame, manager, or J. T. King. A Western Union connection and advertisements for Dr. LeGear's veterinary prescriptions are on the wall. Dr. LeGear's products were a common sideline for feed stores. There is also some question as to the name of the company. It was later identified as Roddy Milling Company, Tex-Mex Tracks.
