My name is Lizzy Tex Borden. I like to take photographs. Some may be interesting, some may be
boring and some may be downright terrible. All of them will enlarge to the size I intended when right
clicked on and opened in a new window. It's all about fun and good times. Savvy? Please excuse my grammar.

Another picture from my trip to the Autry Museum of Western Heritage
at Griffith Park, California. The above awesome hat was worn by Yakima
Canutt (11/29/1895 - 5/23/1986). Mr. Canutt was the first person to actually
choreograph stunts so that they were safe for stunt folks to perform. He is a
legendary stuntman and there is so much more to this person than I could
ever write here. I unfortunately do not know the hat's
maker or anything else about it.
