Card Game on the Range



This is an interesting picture from 1908 showing a Cowboy, Indian and Mexican playing cards. One has to wonder what the outcome was.

  1. I check your site every morning, and it is one of my favoretes - but can you or anyone else tell us what has happened to Nate Maas?? I miss his writing, and the friendly exchange you had!

  2. It's interesting that the cowboy has his revolver laying beside him. I wonder if he felt the need to threaten the other players to keep honest? Or maybe there was some level of distrust from previous games?

  3. This looks like a staged picture. Probably a post card for the folks in the east.

    1. This is not to say that I don't enjoy this blog. I check it every day.

  4. Is the Indian smoking a long pipe?
