Catalog Cover #11 High-Caliber Conversation: A little bit of history here! The painter, James B. Meek, is the gentleman in the red shirt holding the revolver. Our founder, Bob Brownell, is the man in the blue shirt holding a pipe and sitting at the table. Our current chairman, Frank Brownell is the young man gazing at the paper-wrapped package from Brownells. The other two men are friends of the family.

Catalog Cover #15 Calm, Cowboy Community: In old times your work was as good as your name. If any of these shops or businesses provided poor service or inferior products, the whole town knew by noon that day. Today we still hold ourselves to that small-town, old-fashioned, way of doing things.

Catalog Cover #16 A Hard Workin’ Scene: Here’s another nostalgic look into the days of the late 1800’s and the early 1900’s. It’s interesting that the Tonsorial Shop is named Pecos Pete’s. Our President/CEO Pete Brownell, says it’s mere coincidence, but we aren’t so sure!
