    What a find!

  • Thanks so much. I wish I could have bought ALL of them to keep them all together with their friends. About a hundred dollars each.

    Are we looking for images of TV/film stars depicting historical personalities, or images of the historical personalities, themselves? I don’t see the Lone Ranger here at all. But, front row, left to right, I will go with Cochise, Wyatt Earp, and Cheyenne Bodie. I forgot who played Cochise on TV, but Jeff Chandler played him in the movies. Wyatt was played by Hugh O’Brian, and Cheyenne was played by the great Clint Walker. The Indian figure actually looks a lot more like Red Cloud.

  • Roy Rogers is in the background with Dale. lol. you are right about Wyatt Earp. My bad…not historical figures of the west, more like tv stars. hahaha. Thanks, Richard. The owner of the shop identified the Native American as Tonto, and the one on the front right as Lone Ranger.

  • HE COULD BE WRONG on Lone Ranger and tonto…I dunno!

    Hi Linda. The rider in the back row, at right, may be Dale Evans, but the hat and shirt are all wrong. However, she did ride a yellow palomino called “Buttermilk.” The gentleman at her side may be Roy Rogers, because Roy rode a white horse called “Trigger,” but the hair is too long and the clothes are all wrong. Picky, picky, picky! The Indian is not Jay Silverheels (“Tonto”), because Jay never went shirtless and he never braided his hair. Jay was a member of a trible either in the Algonquin or Huron Nations, and they did not braid their hair. I think this may actually be Red Cloud, although Red Cloud rarely went shirtless, or possibly Crazy Horse. I am still putting my money on Cochise, an Apache, who braided his hair and went shirtless, but Crazy Horse is picking up momentum. The guy on the right is the massively proportioned Clint Walker (“Cheyenne”), for sure! LOL Don’t forget about me at JPG!

  • Richard, you are a hoot! I can’t believe you know all of this or dug up all this stuff about these horsemen, whoever they are. I’m really laughing. I defer to you! I’m just a VISUAL person. I just love the way they look together, whether they belong together or not, whether they are authentic or not, and whether the person in the antique shop sold me a line of BS or not, lol. You have to admit, they are definitely on the move, going somewhere fast, TOGETHER, whoever they are. And don’t you just love the colors. Hey! I captured a great action shot, did not have to put myself right in front of a line of charging horses, and did not even have to use a fast shutter speed! I scored!!! hahahaha…lol…chortle. Chuckle. Ha.


    ha ha.

    Those are so cool. I once had a collection of horses and not sure where they went. Thanks for bringing back the past, Linda.

  • Thanks so much, Karen! I had a collection too. I remember a black stallion in particular….I was just a little girl, but he was ’my horse" then, lol.
