Eight black and white photographs of antique wagon wheels

Photographs of old, wooden wagon wheels, including some found on an abandoned western wagon in Wyoming

These rustic wooden wagon wheels were the state-of-the-art technology for the westward expansion of America, carrying wagonloads of settlers, travelers, and cargo across the great plains and Rocky Mountains toward the Pacific coast.

Take a look at the first two photographs of a weathered and decaying antique buckboard wagon, found abandoned on the plains of Wyoming. Who can say how long it's been since it carried its last load?
