The skin tight pants kind of gives it away.
I think that's horsehair from the braided hatband. I've had several that did the same thing.
I don't have the look...just the wrinkles from being in the sun. I told my dermatologist who treats me for skin cancer that to this point I've probably spend 90% of my lifetime outdoors; in the woods & on the water...the other 10% I just wasted. Skin cancer could kill me yet, but sitting behind a desk would have done it already.
That looked a bit like Montie Montana for a second, especially the outfit, but definitely not. Some kind of performer, thus the tight riding britches and what looks to be makeup. Old silent film star? Cool boots and coat.
Tom Mix in a Hudson's Bay blanket coat.
Yep, Google says the guy in the tight pants is indeed Tom Mix, pictured with performer Tex Cooper. The photo is autographed for the owner of the Hollywood Saddlery Co. Tom looks young.
That nose looks like it's been around the block a few times. Wonderful photo!
What a hat!
Same thing with the ear.
Looks like it is autographed to Marion Monte Stone.
Colonel Teddy Roosevelt
Buck Brannaman, THE horse whisperer.
Reminds me of this guy -
I think it's Major Monte Stone, who owned the saddlery. That name brought up the same photo in a museum collection.
Found on tumblr. Unknown date and location.
Col. Arthur Weimar Thompson
Old Uncle Bill! I met him a number of times in the '70's in Manhattan. One time I ducked into the bar at 1 University Place to escape a downpour only to discover him, Ginzberg, Terry Southern, and Taylor Meade sitting at a table having lunch. They invited me to join them, and, well, it was memorable. Burroughs' opening line was, "Have a seat, m'boy, this table's in desperate need of some new blood."
