A young man sits on horseback on the south side of the John Show Ranch house. The three people in the photo have not been identified. The side of the ranch house, with its Spanish-style archway, is today the main entrance. The home was built in 1928 and has survived several large earthquakes, thanks to its reinforced steel-and-poured-concrete walls. Black and white photograph dates from late 1940s or early 1950s.
