1920 to 1923


From the Nye County, Nevada Photograph Collection (PH-00221) -- Series VII. Other areas in Nye County -- Subseries VII.H. Reed Family (Kawich Mountains, Nevada). The older man in front with the baby carriage is a joke: There was no baby in the carriage. It was symbolic of the fact that old men did not participate in the round-up, but were instead told to stay home and take care of the ranch and the baby. This old man is Wake Catlet, described by Ed Slavin as a “residue of the Civil War.” Catlet was said to be the only man in Nye County of whom Jack Longstreet was afraid.
