July 1989: Neckties attached to fence outside of Pinnacle Peak Patio in Scottsdale, Arizona. Photo by Scott Harrison.
Western themed tourist attractions once dotted Scottsdale, Arizona. All were lost to urban sprawl. Reata Pass Steakhouse and Pinnacle Peak Patio closed in recent years. In 2005, Rawhide moved the Chandler, Arizona.
Recently I scanned 1985 and 1989 negatives from visits to Pinnacle Peak Patio and Rawhide. Thirty six images are posted in this flickr photo album: Scottsdale Western spots.
My thoughts on images past and present.
