Empire Ranch Buckboard Supplying Camps ca. 1899
Abstract: 
Two horses tethered to a buckboard filled with supplies for the camps. The Empire Ranch expanded by purchasing other ranches or contracting to operate and place cattle on other ranches. At one point it was estimated the ranch covered a little over a million acres. During the roundup season there were scattered camps along the ranch. Supplies were transported using buckboards.
