I ran across some old western pictures cleaning out a storeroom awhile back.

I thought I would share some here over a few posts.

This house had dried buffalo hide for window coverings. Love the cats.

Bustling San Angelo 1880 Pioneer Parade. You can see the City Bakery, Schwartz & Raas, Pinoeer Drug Co., and Arc Light Salon storefronts. For those familiar with San Angelo, this is the northside of Concho Ave. at the corner of Concho and Chadbourne.
