    A Few More Tintypes

    Here are three more original tintype images that I recently added to my collection.

    The first shows a serious-looking man wearing a sombrero, crossed gun-belts, and leather chaps. He's armed with two unidentified handguns (at least one probably a Colt) and a large double-barrel shotgun.

    The second image shows two men, one holding a bottle of whisky and the other displaying an Iver Johnson "Defender" .32 caliber rimfire revolver.

    The third image shows a work-crew aboard a railroad handcar.

    These images are in their original cases, illustrated in the last photo.

    Those chaps with pockets for fencing tools must have been a real handy item to wear out on the range. It's easy to imagine being dismounted and walking the fence line and not having to keep going back to the saddle bags.

    Growing up around old time cattlemen and cowboys, I would not put walking and chaps in the same sentence either. Most old time cowboys I knew and know would mount up to ride from one post to the next. Some of the fences could be a half day ride between posts.

    Truth is the old time full length chaps are pretty confining. Made for protection so they are awkward at best and hard to walk in. Not all that easy to get on the horse wearing them either. By the time you get on you aint wanting to get off again real soon. Checking a fence is different than fixing fence and making emergency repairs. That is why they had wagons back in the day and fence crews.

    Even Chinks (half chaps) and the lighter version, Armitas, aren't something you'd typically wear on the ground outside the branding trap. And even then not a single person in the ground crew at the last branding I was at this spring wore chaps or chinks. Most of the riders doing the roping had one or the other version.

    I ride in southern NM and AZ, and seldom wear them unless going off trail. When riding through brush though, they help. Everything in the desert either bites, stings, is poisonous, or is sharp. But my mules don't like getting stuck either, so unless hunting, I stay in the open.

    Well...the old time cowboys were notoriously lazy when it came to doing anything off a horse.

    Chaffee,
    You sound like you've run out of beer.

    Well to tell the truth, I gave up drinking for a week. It didn't sit well with my constitution.
