SOUTH PANEL 3 LEFT HAND VIEW
This frieze, which "reads" from right to left, shows a locomotive, representing the coming of the railroads to Texas, some Texas Civil War soldiers, an Indian watching cowboys branding a calf, symbolizing the Cattle Industry. The other figures symbolize the founding of Texas A.&M. University and the University of Texas, with Dr. Ashbel Smith (hands clasped) in the center. Other figures symbolize General Agriculture, Animal Husbandry, and the Citrus Fruit Industry of Texas.
