Another picture of the Roundup Queen and Princess with the flag bearers and Charles M. Eneix (in the middle) This picture is actually labelled as being in 1926. This is a great view from the grandstand looking out over the rodeo grounds.
Take a look at the announcers stand in the middle of the arena with a the American flag flying above it. It appears to be supported on one pole! there doesn't seen to be any supporting structure to hold it in place. There is only a ladder up the pole leading to the box.
My next posting will start showing the action that the spectators got to enjoy.
