Wyatt Earp #3 - In March 1881, he set out to find a posse of cowboys who had robbed a stagecoach and its driver. Earp struck a deal with rancher, Ike Clanton who dealt regularly with the cowboys. In return for his help, Earp promised Clanton a $6,000 reward. Their partnership quickly dissolved due of Clanton's paranoia that Earp would leak the details of their bargain. Turning against Earp, Clanton bragged that he would kill one of the Earp men.
The "Old Man" of Menlo, IA was commissioned by Harry Kalbach in 1935 for his oil station. In 2008, Harry Kalbach, Jr. restored the 12 1/2' sign which is outlined with neon lights to its original state. The Old Man's arm moves up and down in a salute and is accompanied by a satisfying creaky squeak.
