'Man Made Mobile' is a must have book and it's great that they've digitized it, but they're still available in hard copy, highly recommended if you can track one down.

Thanks for that Linkstrap .. I guessed you'd got it from the cinch pic. Didn't know it was still available in hard-back  .. I shall certainly search for it .. thanks again

I'm still around if something interesting turns up, I might just need a nudge.
Unfortunately the pictures of the original saddle are still not as good as the repro ones but it's still quite obvious that there are major differences between the two and when studying gear you have to go to the originals.

I think that J.S. Collins & Co operated between 1886 and 1890 before changing address and name. A J. S. Collins & Co stamped loop seat saddle is in The Cheyenne Saddle book bud.

Jim, am I to understand that that was indeed a Gallatin horsehair girth?
