This photo of my father, Ray J. Marlin, was taken near Conway, Missouri in 1933.  He was 20 at the time and was working as a farm hand.  I have often wondered what happened to the gun belt and holster!  He married my mother in February, 1934 and by 1935, they had driven across the Dust Bowl to California.  I didn’t come across this photo until long after my father died, and I wish I had been able to ask him questions…what I do know is that he had a life long interest in the Old West and cowboys, which apparently started when he was young!


  1. Love the picture of Cowboy Grandpa!
