Small Town America



Clayton, New Mexico


Clayton, New Mexico hosted the 2010 Antique Barbed Wire Society's Super Show.  It took place in the Civic Center, Clayton, on Friday 16th and Saturday 17th July 2010.



General View of the Show.


Nice collection of Barbed Wires.  Note the horseshoe cowboy with barbed wire lassoo.


Close up of a "shortie" collection.


Wires for sale, mounted on white-faced board, and with identification details on the labels.


Interesting display in wooden case with sack-cloth backing.


Wires lined up on a table.


Interesting collection of splices.


Another collection of "shorties" in a wooden case with leather strips holding the wires.


More wires for sale.


Incredible home-made carriage-wheel revolving display. The whole thing disassembles for transit.
