Washington state poet Del Gustafson shares vintage family photos of his great uncle, Ernest Frederick Roberts. He comments on them:

Uncle Fred was a Cowboy in Oklahoma, where he met Polly Ames and headed for eastern Washington, (The Great Inland Empire) where he eventually took up well drilling. He came north to be closer to his mother and his brothers who had moved to Blaine, Washington around 1902. My grandfather settled here after he returned from the Philippine insurrection.


 

Uncle Fred is the brother we know the least about. The pistol and the star make me wonder if he might have been involved in law enforcement at some point. I think the pictures were taken around 1912. I got the pictures from Louise Clifton Cash, a breeder of Clydesdale horses. We share a relationship with the Parkers as in Quanah Parker the Comanche War Chief. Louise and I are Parkers rather than Comanches.
 


 

 

Del has shared a previous picture in Picture the West:

"Special One"
Not quite a buffalo, this little feller was the only white in an entire herd of black. I thought he was special if not sacred.

"At the Ready"
During a recent team roping, my eye was drawn to the tools of the trade just waiting to be called into action.

Summer Memories
I remember a time when summer evenings were sure to mean homemade ice cream. My favorite is still vanilla with fresh blackberries. How about you?
