Old West Beauty And A Day That Will Live In Epiphany

 October 21, 2021

    Sometimes people try to tell me that women in the past were not as beautiful as those of today. I simply show them this photo and tell them to get a clue.

Old West era Beauty

   Believe it or not, sometimes I find new stuff about my early life that I have never seen before:

Al Bell's Flying A Station On Legendary Route 66

Wow! Cool feature. The web address for this was actually in a proposal for a BBB statue in Kingman. Here's the front of the proposal:

A Day That Will Live In Epiphany 

  Well, I was at the centennial, in October of 1981, and I was at the 125th anniversary, so I suppose I'd better get my behind down to Tombstone for the 140th. I'll see you there.

   I'll be there at 2:30 on Tuesday afternoon, to walk where they walked, and talk where they talked.

"Well, you could have phoned that one in."

    I would love to be in Tombstone for that but travel logistics will prevent me from going. I'll just have to read my Classic Gunfights 2 and watch Tombstone again that day. Duelist TW Maniac 235

  2. I hate to tell you that your old west beauty above is not old. What gave it away was the makeup, again. Women didn't have false eyelashes back then. This is a modern woman recreating a photo of model and actress Evelyn Nesbit from 1902. Here's the original photo of Evelyn on Wikipedia, scroll down on the right:

  3. You are so right about the make up and false eye lashes. They look like eye blankets. I would love to see an authentic western done right.
