At its peak, the Shoe Bar Ranch covered 350,000 acres of leased land and 110,000 acres of owned land in Donley, Hall, and Briscoe Counties. In 1906 the Chicago packing firm Swift & Company bought the ranch. Almost immediately, the company began shipping the cattle out and selling the land in individual tracts to farmers and ranchers. The sell-off was completed by 1913. The largest sale was made in 1910 to William J. Lewis of Clarendon. Smith photographed on Lewis' spread.
