Kansan's Old West photos wanted

Francis Marion Steele was a genius at documenting disappearing ways of life. His black-and-white photos are iconic Old West. There's the half-circle of cowboys clutching plates of food, chuckwagon in the background, surrounded by prairie. Or the three American Indian boys seated on horses in the middle of a creek, sun streaming down. Or the early automobile, a horse-drawn wagon, billowy clouds and the pioneering spirit.
