Names
chaps 22
Date:
1880s
Credit Line:
Gift of the Robert E. Manville Family
Inscription:
inside: Laramie Groc Co
Remarks:
Angora wool chaps, marked inside "Laramie Groc Co.," the predecessor to Laramie Saddlery Company. These appear to have been made originally in the early 1880s by the Laramie Grocery Company in Laramie, Wyoming, but the donors also state that the chaps were made in 1930 by Clarence Manville for his nephew, Harry Manville, as a birthday present. The chaps are stitched to a leather belt, suggesting that they may have been re-worked (re-assembled) at some point, thus accounting for the two dates.
