    This is a 1920's El-Bo Dude Ranch Decal from Jackson's Hole, Wyoming.  Chester Gross and his partners purchased 115 acres of James Manges homestead to establish the Elbo Ranch in 1926.  Their "cabin camp" included tourist cabins with indoor plumbing, a store, a baseball diamond, a large rodeo arena with a racetrack, a grandstand and refreshment kiosks.  Billboards proclaimed it to be "the home of the Hollywood Cowboy."  The decal, measuring 5.8125" high by 6" wide, is composed of a large deep turquoise "L" with a red bow around its neck and a black border.  "Jackson's Hole Wyoming" appears above the bow.  Below, there is a white and black horse's head to the right, "Teton Glacier" in large black and white diagonal letters, "Best one day trip in America" in black letters (left), "Trips-Monday Wednesday and Friday" in black letters (right), and "El-Bo Ranch - Foot of Grand Teton" in black and white letters at the bottom.  This 1920's El-Bo Dude Ranch Decal is in generally Good condition.  There are two tears on the top of the bow, wear to the border black  and the vestiges of glue on the back, where the decal had been fixed in an album.
