    Thanks to early photogs. US snapshots of the 19th century.

    Great poem at the bottom...

    Cowboys around the Hoodlum Wagon, Spur Ranch, Texas, 1910

    Judging by the saddle style, this unidentified cowboy was working in the late 1870s or 1880s.
    In his holster, he carries a Colt model 1873 single action revolver with hard rubber grips, and he has looped his left arm around a Winchester model 1873 carbine in a saddle scabbard.
    On the back of the photo is the light pencil inscription “Indian fighter.”

    In 1906, a massive magnitude 7.9 earthquake ruptured the entire San Andreas Fault in Northern California.
    That is a huge running crack in the ground. Now they are building houses right on the line, as fast as the boards can be delivered. Hmmmm!

    This is what real cowboys looked like in 1887. Not as fancy as on TV, huh!

    Somethings don't change, US 550 between Ouray & Silverton has been closed since yesterday due to a half mile wide slab slide avalanche. Snow depths on the highway range from 10-30 feet. No reopening date has been announced yet. 03/05/2019

    I grew up in Anaheim, CA beginning in 1960. The center of town pictured was a five mile trip on Lincoln Ave. to the closest grocery store. The brick building in the picture was still standing. Unfortunately all these old cool buildings were torn down in the 90's(?) during a massive downtown redevelopment project. The buildings in Anaheim had the largest concentration of gargoyles in the United States in the 1960's
