The Old West - Real Cowboys and Indians

Welcome to some Photos of the Old West.

Above is an artist's depiction of a man on his way to search for Gold as thousands did in those
Days. The artist did some first-class research to come up with such a real looking painting.

Following, are some real photos rich in American History. Floating around as a FWD email
and too good to delete after viewing, they are posted here for people to see and enjoy.

Considering the time period, approximately 1886 - 1890, these photos have excellent qualities
having been taken with glass photo plates and are quite vivid.
