    RARE SET OF TWO A.A. BRACK - SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS CABINET CARDS - TWO COWBOYS - LADY OF THE RANCH - ca. 1895. Set of two cabinet card photographs from noted San Antonio photographer Asa A. Brack. The first image is a pink, scalloped-edge cabinet card of two young cowboys in their best attire, with boots and a hat on the floor. The photograph measures 4.25" x 6.5" overall and the contrast and tone are light toward the top.

    The second image is a proper lady on horseback at a ranch or rural area, on a slightly oversize cabinet card measuring 6.75" x 4.5". It was a long-standing Texas tradition that the female matriarchs on a ranch take a photograph while mounted on a horse. There was a photographic exhibit detailing this tradition at the Cattleman's Museum in Ft. Worth, Texas. A fine image showing a proper "Lady of the Ranch" sitting regally atop her mount.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
