Good book

Several pictures from this book were actually taken in southeastern Arizona rather than Texas. The picture of cowboys riding past a Greene and Co store were taken in Hereford,AZ. Col. Greene was a rancher and started the copper mine in Cananea, Sonora, Mexico. His home and headquarters were in Hereford. A resident of the area has this picture and another quite similar, the event was staged. Several other pictures have similar mountains in the background and were most likely taken nearby.
