A Mumble-Peg Game /Images of the Old West/ 1906

Some cowboys at the Turkey Track Ranch in Texas 1906 are taking a few moments rest. This shot features Jess Bomar who is lying on one side, Charley Thompson is the one sitting on the far left, and Fred "Kid" Bomar is sitting on the far right in these images of the Old West..
