From the FCS Book of Little-Known Facts (cowboys)

Cowboys mosey up to the bar at a saloon in Tascosa, Texas, 1907

Well, howdy partner, doesn’t this look at the old west just bust your broncos? We tend to think of cowboys saddling up to a saloon and tossing down shots of whiskey while playing cards, and while that may be fiction to an extent, this photo from Tascosa, Texas, shows how spot on our thoughts about the Wild West are. Admittedly the “wild” west occurred a few decades before this but it’s still got the dust of the trail, the 10-gallon hats, and enough chaps to make you realize how hard it was to really ride a horse. Can’t you just smell the sarsaparilla?


There is never a time
