Images from the Past, Part 7 - My Grandmother's 1915 Yellowstone Journal


1915 was nearing the end of the horse drawn carriages in Yellowstone.   A couple of years and they would be gone, replaced by automobiles.  Here are a few photos that feature horses and the various vehicles they pulled...  My grandmother, I believe, is to the left of the white horse.  I had NO idea she could ride!  I am participating in "Sepia Saturday" - please give yourself a treat and see what other photos and memories from the past are being highlighted today.




I like the above as the horse drawn vehicles were soon to be replaced by the automobile... which is "lurking" in the background, above right.    My grandmother is sitting on the far left.



I believe Marguerite is the second to the right.  Doesn't it look like LOADS of fun to trial ride these mountain trails!


This is one of my favorite photos.

This is the second pot this week that takes us to Yellowstone. To see it from the back of a horse must have been something special.

Great photos. I have never been to Yellowstone. I wish I could go back in time and visit it in the horse era.

Wonderful photos. You are so lucky to have them...and they are so lucky that you have them. Thanks for sharing them and telling us a little of their history.

What a fun time she must have had. I'm really enjoying these photos - a pity that when I eventually get to Yellowstone, it won't be like that any more.

Lovely images. The composition of the photographs is excellent too.

All fascinating shots, but I love the angle on the first one.
