Herb Ringer’s American West: Herb at the South Rim of the Grand Canyon, 1950


Herb Ringer at the South Rim of the Grand Canyon, 1950

Scenes near the Bright Angel Lodge and the El Tovar Hotel.

Herb befriended many of the wranglers at the South Rim and was particularly fond of Sherm Eberly, who led trail rides down the Bright Angel Trail for decades.

HERB RINGER came West from his home in New Jersey in 1939. Camera in hand, Herb captured the American West, from the Canadian Border to the Rio Grande and from the Big Sur coast to the High Plains.
We believe Herb’s collection of Life in the West is one of the finest. His work has been published in The Zephyr for 20 years. I am pleased finally, to offer Herb’s photographs in color. We are also building a new ‘album’ of his work, elsewhere on this site.
My dear friend died on December 11, 1998…JS

Don’t forget the Zephyr ads! All links are hot!
