LOST HISTORY FROM KODAK     

 

A bit of lost history captured by Kodak..

 
Cowboys around the Hoodlum Wagon, Spur Ranch, Texas , 1910
 
Judging by the saddle style, this unidentified cowboy 
was working in the late 1870s or 1880s. 
In his holster, he carries a Colt model 1873 single action revolver 
with hard rubber grips, and he has looped his left arm around a 
Winchester model 1873 carbine in a saddle scabbard. 
On the back of the photo is the light pencil inscription “Indian fighter.”
 
Snow Tunnel ~ On the Ouray and Silverton Toll Rd ~ Colorado ~ 1888
 
1899 Concord , Michigan “Buggy & Wagon Shop”
 
Thankful someone took the time to photograph this type of beauty – April 1937. 
Buttermilk Junction, Martin County , IN. (April 7, 1937)
 
Now we have Disneyland here!
 
Moser’s Guns, Banjos, and Mules at the Livery stable in 
East Tennessee around 1890.
 
 
In 1906, a massive magnitude 7.9 earthquake ruptured the 
entire San Andreas Fault in Northern California . 
That is a huge running crack in the ground. 
Now they are building houses right on the line as fast 
as the boards can be delivered. 
Hmmmm… smarter folks back then?
 
This is what real cowboys looked like in 1887. 
Not as fancy as on TV, huh!
 
Some of the toughest, bravest people we know of. 
They gave it their all to go west and start a new life. 
This wagon train is in eastern Colorado in 1880.
 
 
This moose team belonged to W.R. (Billy/Buffalo Bill) Day. 
They were found by a Metis near Baptiste Lake in 1910 and were 
reared by bottle and broken to drive by Mr. Day at Athabasca Landing 
during the winter of 1910. 
Mr. Day and the moose team hauled mail and supplies.
 
In the American Civil War, soldiers were required to have 
at least four opposing front teeth, so that they could open 
a gunpowder pouch. Some draftees had their front teeth 
removed to avoid service. 
In our day they just jumped the border into Canada .
 
Here we have a tired old prospector during the Klondike Gold Rush.
 
Lulu Parr – 
Her skill with the gun caught the attention of Pawnee Bill, 
who signed her to his show in 1903. 
She left that show but came back in 1911. 
By that time, Pawnee Bill had joined Buffalo Bill’s show. 
Buffalo Bill was so in awe of Lulu’s willingness to ride 
unbroken ponies that he presented her with an ivory-handled 
Colt single-action revolver, engraved with 
“Buffalo Bill Cody to Lulu Parr—1911.” 
A KIND OF PAR FOR THE COURSE?
 
View from the driver’s seat of a 40 mule team. 
These rigs were used to haul Borax out of Boron, CA 
and then loaded onto railroads for manufacturing. 
All this so you could do the laundry! 
Man, that’s a lot of horses!
 
Hoops had to be removed before taking your seat in a carriage 
and then they were hooked onto the back of the carriage.
 
Omaha Board of Trade in Mountains near Deadwood, SD April 26, 1889. 
 
It was created in 1889 by Grabill, John C. H., photographer. 
The picture presents procession of stagecoaches loaded 
with passengers coming down a mountain road.
 
 
This is a stunning photograph from 1862. 
The image shows a horse-drawn Civil War ambulance crew 
removing the wounded from a battlefield.

Thanks to loyal reader Bill Bowser for this video. Bill also contributes his photos of Covered Bridges to Tolley’s Topics.  The rare, endangered, and elusive  white supremacist has been located.  The scarce white supremacist is like the last Nazi they keep finding to try for WW 2 war crimes.

Mare Frigoris
Image Credit & Copyright: Matt Smith

Explanation: Lighter than typically dark, smooth, mare the Mare Frigoris lies in the far lunar north. Also known as the Sea of Cold, it stretches across the familiar lunar nearside in this close up of the waxing gibbous Moon’s north polar region. Dark-floored, 95 kilometer wide crater Plato is just left of the center. Sunlit peaks of the lunar Alps (Montes Alpes) are highlighted below and right of Plato, between the more southern Mare Imbrium (Sea of Rains) and Mare Frigoris. The prominent straight feature cutting through the mountains is the lunar Alpine Valley (Vallis Alpes). Joining the Mare Imbrium and Mare Frigoris, the lunar valley is about 160 kilometers long and up to 10 kilometers wide.
