Thou still unravished bride of quietness,
Thou foster child of silence and slow time,
Sylvan historian, who canst thus express
A flowery tale more sweetly than our rhyme:
What leaf-fringed legend haunts about thy shape
Of deities or mortals, or of both…. – – Keats
American Cowgirls of the 1940’s Here’s a collection of unseen photographs of cowgirls were taken by LIFE photographers Nina Leen, Peter Stackpole and Cornell Capa between 1947-48 at the University of Arizona Rodeo and the opening of the Flying L Ranch in Texas, which included a celebratory cowgirl fashion event.
From all this some readers might conclude that when it comes to beautiful women in tight jeans on horses I am a shallow man, and they’d be right.
Hello, cowgirl in the sand…
Is this place at your command?
Can I stay here for a while?
Can I see your sweet, sweet smile?
