    Description

    1915 Boudoir Studio Image of Canadian Cowboy. Full-length image of a seated man wearing fringed buckskin pants and shirt. He holds a lever-action 1886 Winchester rifle, wears bandoliers across his chest, and sports a Bowie knife hanging from his gunbelt. A bit of a dandy, this frontiersman also wears a huge mustache and fancy pinkie ring. Identified on verso as "Elbert Thayer" of "Banff, Alberta, Canada 1915." Image measures 4.5" x 6"; it is affixed to a 7" x 8.75" photographer's mount. From the Emory A. Cantey Western Collection.

    Condition: Image bears many scratches and abrasions; mount shows heavy wear, creases, and staining. Fair.
