Inscription and Marks

Typed in black ink and attached to back of image: ' Pioneer dancing in the old Williams Livery Stables, across Eureka Street from the Teller House. Dr. Lloyd Shaw (in the 10-Gallon hat) calls and leads the dances, which feature a group from Dr. Shaw's famous Cheyenne Mountain School of Dancing. (NOTE... unfortunately, this is the only fairly recent photo we have of the dancing. I think you need have noworry about using this picture without a relseas, as the use of this picture would be publicity for Dr. Shaw's group. We have used it a number of times ourselves.)'
