Description: Pictured here is a small wood-frame house in the Irving area in 1925.  In 1925, the area around Irving supplied much of Dallas County with  fruits, vegetables, and dairy products.  Most of the fruit and vegetables were produced on small truck farms, so called because farmers would load their produce onto their trucks and take it to various markets, such as the Farmers Market in downtown Dallas.
