In the frontier of Colorado in 1903, Frank Sherman had a photography
studio and souvenir shop in Colorado Springs. he decided that he needed
more postcards to sell to the tourists, so he visited his brothers who
worked at the Holt Livestock Co., in Hugo, Colorado. He packed up his
gear and went to photograph the cattle roundup.
His timing was fortuitous. Just before the roundup was to start, word
came that President Theodore Roosevelt would be stopping in Hugo on his
western trip. Frank Sherman got the pictures.
Those pictures and other wonderful images of the Old West are presented
here for the first time. Having saved them from destruction, John Eggen
has made it his avocation to preserve them and share them with a
An earlier volume.
