Cavite Cowboys - Timeless Thursdays


Photo from my father's friend, Uncle Ed Pacia

Back in the 70's, this photo was taken on a grand meet up day at the beach of the Cavite Sector of the Cowboy Radio Communication Inc. I asked my father (the one in the red polo) what this group is, he said that they are one of the first (if not the very first) Citizen Band Radio Service group in the province of Cavite. My father said a lot of his friends from here in General Trias started their friendship through the Cowboy CB group. This maybe taken half a century ago but they all look so young as if it was just taken yesterday! Most of these men are either still living in Cavite or now in the United States.

Special Thanks to Uncle ED Pacia for letting me share his amazing timeless photograph.

  1. I love old photos. This one is fun. And I love how some of the boys are doing bunny ear behind other boys. They do that world over. It is great to see every country shares so much in common, even with our differences. Happy Thursday. Hugs-Erika

    1. Hello dear Erika! That is such a great observation! You are right, I have seen pictures and videos from other countries and through my travels that they also do that :) Happy Thursday Erika!

  4. What a wonderful photograph and a fabulous slice of history Stevenson. I remember the days here, in the late 1960's, when there was a group who started a private radio station - from a ship in the Hauraki Gulf - private radio was prohibited then - now it is common!
    Stay safe

    1. Wow! It's amazing that the emergence of the private radios paved the way to public ones and the fact that they were prohibited before and now is common, shows how innovative minds need to somehow break the norm :)

      Happy Thursday Dear Maxine!
