On a peaceful morning, gunfighters and cowboys relax in this scene from the porch of the Tascosa Hotel. The stagecoach has just left on an adventure-filled trip of the area, where tough outlaws hang out.

–All the people visible in the image are hired performers, who would act in the style of the times, and would stage scripted events throughout the day for the visitors to watch.

This image likely dates from the 1960s.
