Horseback Riders: 1958

Horseback Riders: 1958

My brother (front) and I are "horseback riding" our father at Christmastime 1958, in Connecticut. We are armed with decidedly urban-looking weapons despite my brother's rustic cowboy hat. One of my uncles (seated) may have been consulting the TV Guide in the lower right corner, for the week of December 20-26, 1958, to decide what to watch on the gigantic--for its time--television set.

Photograph by my grandfather, Edward Butler, whose work has previously been featured on Shorpy. Scanned February 2021 from a 35mm Kodachrome slide.
