Originally Buckhorn Bar - established 1881. Where the sunshine spends the winter. Partial interior view of the Famous Buckhorn Curio Store, classed by tourists to more sof a Museum than a store, for the countless numbers of horned animal heads displayed on the walls and ceiling of this unique establishment form a Natural History exhibit without equal. Some of the outstanding specimens are: A Texas deer head with antlers containing 78 points, also a full body mounted of a Texas Long-horn Steer, the horns of which are over 8 feet tip to tip. An African Gorilla full body mounted stands 5 feet 4 inches tall and the world's largest steer head is also displayed with horns measureing 7 feet 9 inches tip to tip, 11 feet along curve of horns and 21 inches around base of horns. The frames on wall pictured on this card contain designs formed of the rattles of thousands of Diamond-Back Rattle Snakes. A mounted Texas Armadillo is pictured along with Mexican hand-made pottery, drawn-work and Serape, representing some of the typical curios and souvenirs of the South-West and Mexico.
