ROMAN RIDING BY VERA MCGINNIS ELKS RODEO KLAMATH FALLS ORE."
unused Azo (triangles up) real photo postcard from Miller Photo Company in
Klamath Falls, slight oxidation. Circa 1912 - 1914,
the only dates we could find for that rodeo. A pioneer at rodeos, she was
apparently very skillful: we found a mention of her as late as 1925, even
though she obviously did dangerous stunts. Also notable for becoming the
first cowgirl to ever wear pants while rodeoing. Rare. Sold but front
side still available for scholarly study & research as an enlarged 300-dpi scan
(publication quality) in .jpg format for $3.75. co(k)gf

Dell married Bertha Kaepernick who gave exhibitions of horse riding; she is probably on the horse shown near to him, because she also served as his hazer during such events. Necessarily before Canada's entry into World War I. $37.50 cgo

(DOUBLEDAY) / 1926" sepia-tone SSSS real photo post card, unevenly toned back, slight oxidation consistent with age, trivial corner wear. Also known to have performed the feat at the Los Angeles Roundup. Note the blanket draped over the car underneath the horse.
