BOB BOVEE | Photo Gallery
I have always been fascinated with the West: cowboys, western music, rodeo and so on.
I was asked why these pictures are in our "Gallery" and it's just because I thought I'd
like to share some of what I've collected. The rodeo photos are mostly by Ralph R.
Doubleday, pioneer rodeo photographer from the Round-Up at Belle Fourche, SD.
