    Picked this up at Brimfield last week. I would give anything for a Pappy’s Ranch Cowgal suit.

    swann-photophilia:

This is a photo by Pearson, Main Street, South Side, Arcade, N. Y. It’s of a woman that, for reasons I couldn’t even begin to guess at, is holding or wearing several non-venomous snakes and has a bunch of timber rattlesnake around her feet and in her lap (?!?).One of the snakes in her lap is even biting another snake. I quit counting at 16 timbers. One might suppose that they’ve had their fangs removed except for the fact that 1. that doesn’t make the snakes safe to handle and 2. who in their right mind would try to pull the fangs from 16+ rattlesnakes?
