Three Men and a Dandy

A serious bunch, until the guy with the shades showed up. Any atmosphere of bad-assness went out the window at that moment.

Stockmen and tourists

are still welcome at the Mint Bar.

The guy on the right

has the string for the makins' hanging out of his shirt pocket.

The Worse for Wear

Capote was 18 at the time of this photograph. Clearly, burning the candle at both ends had already caught up with him.

1941 Online Shopping

If those are New West Stockmen, would it be possible to see something from the special order catalog? Although I have no complaints about those Lennonesque Multi-Tasking Welding Goggles, if they are in stock.

Dark Thoughts

I wonder where he ordered those X-ray glasses.

Truman Capote?

Maybe he was writing a story about Stockmen, whatever they are.

'69 in the Shades

Those sunglasses look straight out of 1969! I can't imagine a guy like him wearing those today. He'd get a lot of strange looks!
