Pictures from Phoenix and sometimes from the surrounding cities that make up the "Valley of the Sun"

This giant silver spur frames one of the entrances to the Stockyards Restaurant, a Phoenix landmark since 1947.
Last summer, I told you the story of Tovrea Castle and the the Tovrea Cattle Company located nearby. You can see that post here. The Stockyards restaurant was part of that legacy. The cattle company was formed in 1919 and the restaurant was added in 1947. I can’t for the life of me find any reference to that date over the door, “Since 1889”.
