The public is invited to view the exhibit "Cowboys, Combines, and Small Towns” of Frontier Photographer F.M. Steele at the Seward County Community College/Area Technical School Library.

In 1890, F.M. Steele outfitted a buggy with photographic equipment and headed out from Dodge City to photograph cowboys.  But soon after, the scope of his subject matter expanded to cover the changing landscape of the Great Plains.

"Cowboys, Combines, and Small Towns” documents cowboys, agriculture, construction, town life, and buildings, along with portraits of people through Steele’s photography.

In addition to field photography, Steele had more than a dozen studios in Kansas, Oklahoma, and Nebraska.

 "Cowboys, Combines, and Small Towns of Frontier Photographer F.M. Steele” was produced by the Kansas Humanities Council, Emporia State University, and the Kansas Historical Society and is part of the Kansas Interpretive Traveling Exhibits Service.

The exhibit is open to the public throughout November.
