2 3/4" x 1 3/4". Great buckle for gift or to add to that rare buckle collection. Henry "Harry" Rowell was born November 11, 1891 in Peterborough, Northamptonshire, England. He visited the United States when he was a member of the HMS Royal Navy. Many stories have been told about how he ended up staying in the U.But once he got to California, he never looked back! He picked up odd jobs such as milking dairy cows, boxing and raising chickens. From there he went on to living the American Dream. Harry owned one of the largest ranches in the area, operated a successful, world famous saddlery and most notably, for many years, he was the biggest Rodeo Stock Contractor in the West - thus the nickname "The Rodeo King of the West". He was the stock provider and Arena Director for the first Grand National Exhibition at the San Francisco Cow Palace in 1941, a role he continued until he left the business in 1952. He was a cattleman and a rancher who raised some of his own stock, which were then showcased at some 25 rodeos which he produced and promoted throughout the West. She loved the rodeo and she traveled everywhere with Harry Rowell proving herself to be, among other things, a formidable poker player and a real trooper on the long road trips. Maggie's devotion and loyalty to Harry and the Rowell Ranch Rodeo helped Harry continue his ascent to "The Rodeo King of the West". The Pictures are a MAJOR part of the description.
