    HUFFMAN CATTLE HERDING PANORAMA. Laton Alton Huffman arrived in Miles City, Montana Territory in 1879 in time to document the beginning, middle and end of the open range era - and no one did it better. Huffman preferred to set up his travelling photo shop on the trail, to capture authentic action shots of cattle drives, roundups and typical ranch life. This unusual panoramic view depicts a few cowboys tending a large herd that has stopped to drink from a shallow creek bed. Penciled on verso: "Throwing the W Bar Herd on Water" in the artist's hand, and identified as image "#50." Image measures 12" x 4½" and is affixed to a 14" x 5" mounting board. Crease at lower right corner of photographer's mount does not affect image. This handsome photograph is in excellent condition and would make an exceptional addition to any collection. From The Chris Kortlander Collection.
