Written on back "Pierre S. Dakota 5 sept. 1915" ("Nebraska" crossed put)

Pierre is the capital of South Dakota. Range-cattle competitions were not known as rodeos, but as frontier days celebrations, roundups and stampedes. The Wild West show employed the term “rodeo” for cowboy competition. As the Wild West shows disappeared, rodeo emerged. Between 1915 and 1925 the term “rodeo” slowly became the word applied

AZO photographic paper dates it from 1904-1918.

Another photo from same event also on sale.
