Tracking down some history

Photo courtesy Dixie Dude Ranch

The July 1961 cover of The Dude Wrangler featured a portrait of Ray Gilbert, owner of Gilbert's Ranch Motel. Gilbert offered $1 tours of Bandera in a 1928 ½ Pontiac that has recently returned to Bandera. See the story on page 1B in this issue of the Courier. We'll have more next week. Judging by the photo, Mr. Gilbert certainly promoted Bandera as the "Cowboy Capital of the World."
