ROYAL WADE KIMES
1800's Cattle Barons Stockyard
This is one of Kimes' most popular
This drawing depicts one of the very
first stockyards built and was located
in East St. Louis, Missouri. During
every year from the late 1880s and
early 1900s 450,000 head of cattle
were sold through this market. The
stockyard ran 24/7 and had its own
bakery, feed and hardware stores,
and even its own brothel.
It took Royal Wade months of
research and over nine months to
actually draw this historic stockyard.
There are 19 men in the picture; to
date, only 18 have been found.
Prints are on Sundance weave canvas-like paper and each is signed, numbered,
and comes with a Limited Edition Collector Print Certificate of Authenticty.
This is an Indian who was dressed up for a big
time "pow wow" of a party. He is young, stout,
good looking and taking nothin' off no one. How
do I know this? It's in the eyes… "The Attitude" is
in the eyes.
