Text on back: Judge Roy Beans Saloon 'Law West of the Pecos' Langtry, Texas. Here still stands the frame building, restored, which housed the Saloon of Judge Roy Bean. Early history shows him as; a Pony Express Rider - Freighter On The Old Chihuahua Trail - Saloon Keeper following the Southern Pacific Railroad construction camps - elected to Justice of Peace, but to this title he added 'Law West of the Pecos'. The latter position he filled with one law book and a six-shooter, rendering witty, unorthodox, prejudiced but sometimes wise decisions, defying higher courts and scandalizing jurisprudence. Vintage postcard is unused and in excellent condition.
