Wordless Wednesday: The Small Cowboy

Here's another photo from Grandma Leola's collection:

I have no information about this photo. Who might this boy be? Where do you think this may have been taken? What do you suppose this youngster is up to?


  1. In the late 1950's/early 1960's in California photographers use to walk the neighborhoods and would schedule appointments for b'day parties, etc with there horse...this looks like it could have been one of the b'day parties I took my kids to. But it does not look like the stucco homes that were built in that era. Interesting clothing the child has on too...says of another time or place.

  2. Thanks for the tip Mary! I know the family was in California for some time around World War II, I don't know the exact dates though. I guess it's time to dig those up.

    I'm wondering if maybe the clothes are just the photographer's props.
