The crossed pins over a ball was the first emblem of the American Bowling Congress, organized in New York City in September, 1895.  Awards from early tournaments sponsored by the ABC, especially the first ABC National Tournament, held January 07-12, 1901 in Chicago, featured that emblem.

This is an old photo that is said to be of downtown Dodge City Kansas, the gunsmith looks suspiciously like George Schoyen;

To me, the gunsmith - i.e., the aproned fella leaning in the doorway - looks more like Axel Peterson.  Mr. Peterson had his own shop in Denver at 1315 15th. Street from 1881 until joining Schoyen in 1911.

I have to agree with MrTipUp, Giorge Schoyen, to my knowledge was never in Dodge City Kansas. It is my understanding that he came directly here from the east. There is a photograph in John Dutcher's book of Peterson, and his son, another reason for me to feel it is Axel Peterson. JMBG

Is it Dodge City Kansas?  Looks like George to me. 

I'm old but not that old, Jack.

I'm happy being Wes.

My apologies and blushes.  I somehow misread the caption "Dodge City" as "Denver".  If the caption is correct, the 'smith is neither Schoyen nor Peterson.  Also, that big gun-shaped sign resembles one that stood outside one of the Freund brothers' shops (see the cover of Ballentine's book); but I don't think those two were ever in Dodge City either.

Could it be George or Frank Freund? Or is he the cook?

westerner   Yep, that is young George in Denver, not Ole George in Dodge City Kansas, as there is no record of his operating a business there. Axel Peterson was a very small man, George Schoyen was not. But don't tell Axel I said so, as I hear he was a scrappy hot head. The man in the photograph in Dodge City, Kansas, if that is actually where the photo was taken, is a small, read short, man, unlike George Schoyen. And I am not aware of Mr. Peterson operating a business in Dodge City, as MrTipUp alluded to. Until, or if, we ever Know the truth of the matter, as I said, you are welcome to your opinion, and I to mine. Mine is that it is neither Ole George, nor Young Axel. Quite possibly the infamous gunsmith Bubba Five thumbs, or the short order cook of the establishment.

It's ole George standing in the doorway in the picture. Thank you for allowing me to have my own opinion.  Wink

I'm still trying to remember where I saw that picture before.  Perty sure it was in a book.  But which book? A book I gave away most likely.  Angry

The Browning Book?

Westerner  That is one thing I learned a long time ago. Never loan a good book to anyone but a best friend, and then only if you would like for them to have the book. If it comes to you, the photographs whereabouts, I would appreciate it if you would let me/us know.   Krag
