Cyclone in the Setting Sun
|This mural commemorates the famous ride of
Alberta cowboy, Tom Threepersons, at the
first Calgary Stampede in 1912 when he rode
the bronco, Cyclone, to a standstill. Cyclone
had thrown over 70 cowboys and had never
been successfully ridden in competition..
|The Mural was painted on the Calgary Stampede
midway as a kind of side show then later
mounted on the wall above.
People love to watch the process.
