 Unseen album reveals the life of a cowboy in the real wild west...<br />
<br />
Fascinating previously unseen early photos of cowboys in the Wild West have come to light 130 years later.<br />

They show life on the ranches of Colorado and New Mexico in the vast expanses of the south west US in the 1880s.<br />

The photos are thought to have been taken by a British farmhand who travelled Stateside in the late 19th century to earn a living.
