SIX COWBOYS IN OAKLEY, IDAHO (EARLY FEMALE PHOTOGRAPHER)

Six cowboys pose for their photograph at the studio of Mrs. R. I. Mills, in Oakley, Idaho. The men are dressed up for the occasion of their portrait. These guys are very interesting characters. The men on the ends of the back row are each smoking. The cigar of the cowboy on the right has a long section of ashes on his cigar. The man in the middle of the back row is wearing spectacles. Note the boots and the bandanas on the two men in the front row. Also note the pants of one of the cowboys sitting in the front row. The pants appear to have studs or snaps on them. Are these special pants for riding or for roping cattle? Perhaps a visitor to the cabinet card gallery site can offer additional information. Some of the men are identified on the reverse of the card. The men in this photograph are friends of James D. Glenn. Pictured on the card are James Glenn, Frank Taylor, Mr. Johnson, and three unidentified men.
