Horse in Front of Blanket

Description

It is highly likely that the horse in this photograph was owned by Fred Moffatt, owner of Moffatt Cigar Co., located at 212 W. State Street. Moffatt was also the owner of a number of pacer and trotter horses. Horse racing was a very popular sport in Rockford. This photograph may have been taken at the "driving range" just north of the city limits or at the Fairgrounds. It may have been taken at the same time as photos 88.122.708, 88.122.659b, 88.122.659c, 88.122.660, 88.122.678, and 88.122.676.
