Old Time Irrigator in Texas
Out on his riding lawnmower to take a look at his irrigation well, 98 year old T.E. Lutrick swings a leg over the steering wheel to get a better look. Lutrick has farmed here since 1920. Put this well in in 1936 when "Everyone thought I was crazy." Got into irrigation to assure crops in bad years, a common early pattern. One of the earliest irrigators in the Texas High Plains. Colorful character.
