GILBERT, Ariz. -- A new exhibit lets visitors take a look at photos of what life was like before Gilbert was a thriving town.

The family of longtime East Valley farmer Howard Morrison, whose family owned a farm, is putting on the exhibit.

Morrison and his wife brought their family from Oklahoma to Gilbert in the 1920s and started their farm. Now, the Morrison family is developing the land for residential use.

The photos of the farm are on display at the Art Intersection Gallery in Downtown Gilbert.

"The family approached us and said, ‘We've got all of these images, and we'd like to have an exhibition,'" said Art Intersection Owner Alan Fitzgerald. "We worked on this for about a year, and came up with 17 images out of several hundred."

The pictures show various aspects of life on the farm. Admission to the exhibit is free. It is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.

Art Intersection is located at 207 N. Gilbert Rd. in downtown Gilbert.
