    NEBRASKA COWGIRL ROPING SCENE - CABINET CARD - ca.1894. This is a rare image of three Nebraska cowgirls roping a steer and "branding" it for the camera. The long line of real cowboys watch as the woman on the ground to the right holds a branding iron. The woman on the horse to the left has the rope tied to her saddle, and another woman helps in the background. The photographer is listed as operating only in the year 1894, in Gering, Nebraska. The image has been transferred, and has edges within the negative, but still retains good tonality and detail. The cabinet card is scalloped edge and measures 6.5"x 4.25". A very interesting and early cowgirl image.
