[front] 2 1/4 Return photo, please! [back] Old stone fence posts still serve their purpose in Hodgeman and Ness Counties, Kansas. July 1955. Lack of timber on Great Plains brought about the use of “bell rock” for posts. “Bell rock” is a limestone rock that breaks suitably for use as posts or building stone and has a peculiar ring when struck with a hammer. Gate post-photo taken July 1955. [back note] For Sure!!! Return this photo to Harry E. Chrisman 10245 W. 14th Ave. Denver, Colo. 80215 A-40 90% 22-7
