This blacksmith shop, in Devine TX, was established in 1900. It was owned by my great grandfather James Stroud Sr. and his brother Joe Stroud. James was also the town constable. After he passed away it was still owned by Joe and later passed onto Joe's son Sherille Stroud. Sherrille passed away in 1990. The shop dedicated a historical marker in 1975 is now maintained by the community of Devine. <a title="Devine, TX History" href=" removed link " target="true"> removed link

Howdy Cholden ... first off ... that you so much for posting here. I apologize for the confusion regarding your post. Still teaching myself the forum software.  I hope you see this response. I THINK you want to post photos here ... correct?  If so, you will be the very first person to post a photo on what I hope will become the best page for Texas history on the Internet. That's my goal, at least.  

 

Also, thank you so much for tagging your post with topic tags.

C. Holden ... there are two ways to do this.

 

1) If the photos are already hosted somewhere on the internet, all you have to do is copy the location of the photo and paste it into your thread.  As of right now, this does NOT work if the photo you're trying to post is from Facebook or Twitter.  It does work from just about every other location as far as I can tell.  I'm trying to figure out how to add facebook/twitter but right now neither works as a host. 

2) If  you want to upload the photos here.  That process is a little clunky, but the benefit is that the photos will stay  here for as long as this board exists.

 

This is what you need to do to upload photos to Traces of Texas:

 

1. Create a new post. Make sure to add the description of when, where, who, why, the story etc... as much as you know

2. Click "attach files."  This will take you to the attach files window.

3. Click "attach files"  at the top of that window.

4. Navigate through your computer/phone to the file, select it, then click Open or Upload or whatever you computer uses to upload

5. Click the start button and the photo will upload to Traces of Texas

6. You should see that there is a check in the box to the right of the word "delete."  If not, make sure that this box is checked

7. Click on the "insert into post"  box.  

8. You will then be returned to your thread and see the words    where the photo will be

9. Click "Add Topic"  and the thread and the photo will be added. 

It's pretty logical/straightforward if you're used to doing this kind of thing on computers.
