"First well driven by Jesse Gray Rowe on University Farm, 1907" is the caption to this photo from the collection of (James) Gray Rowe of Davis, whose father and grandfather (Jesse Gray Rowe Jr. and Sr.) engaged in the well-boring and plumbing business. The senior Rowe is pictured at center. The possibility exists that this photo was taken in 1908 when the seedhouse was constructed, or in about 1910 when the first poultry buildings were built.
