Looks like this guy is carrying Colt 1873 Single Action on his hip with a Winchester 1873 in the saddle scabbard.

OK, here's a fun question about that second picture - which hat would you wear?

I'd go with the second from the left, back row.

Second from the right. Bet that cowboy in the first picture could use both of them really well.

Back row. Second from the left. Awesome pics!

Great pics. Most guys that wear cowboy hats these days are, as my dad would say, "all hat and no cattle." Those old pics are awesome

Cool pics! I really like the first one. I bet that old boy has got some stories to tell. Or did, rather. And bottom left on the hat.


Mmmm Hmmm

Id like to know why the one is in a dress. Pajamas? By the looks of the rope and mud on the wheel they must have been stuck. Drying his clothes? Hey get a picture of Buck in that dress! Hahaha

the 4th hat from the left light colored wide brim not too tall. Smile


One shot is all it should take.

That's not a dress. It's a duster.

Wonder where those pics were taken? First pic looks like Liveoaks behind him. 2nd pic could be panhandle.

Erathkid, the guy who sent me the pics said that the second one was taken on Spur Ranch, circa 1910. Spur is in Dickens County, about 60 miles east of Lubbock. So I think you were correct in guessing the location. I was not given any information on the location of the first picture, however, written in pencil on the back of the picture was "Indian Fighter."

Neat old photos.

Very cool pics! My mother's side of family is from Spur, Roaring Springs and Matador. Sure wish I knew more about their past.



Here's a link to more of the Spur Ranch.

first on the right, looks like a turn of century cavalry hat. Could be a cooky's apron maybe?
