windpumps Cowboy Photographer: Erwin E Smith

The Erwin E Smith Cowboy Photography Collection is a set of photographs documenting the life of the cowboys, taken by Erwin E Smith, one of their number, in the years 1905-1912. Of course, on the ranches of Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona, wind engines (wind pumps) were a quite common sight, though at present a search only gives 5 results. I especially like this picture of horses drinking from the water trough. Note there are other images showing wind pumps that have not been sufficiently well indexed to show up in the search results, such as these of Spur Ranch, Cross-B Ranch, and Three Block Ranch.
