I am looking for more information on this leather bag in order to make my own. Tough to tell from the photo how wide it is, how it opens and how many straps hold it in place.

The photograph is of Crothers and Birdsong, National cycle dealers exclusively, right here in San Antonio.

likely custom made for the bike as most bikes will have different triangular openings and rider needs.

That makes sense since he ran a bike shop. Birdsong’s bike Looks to have one too according to the shadows.
It must be an uncommon design. I guess I’m going to have to break down and use my imagination.

Thanks for the advert! Now I don’t have to guess!

I ran across this photograph yesterday. These guys have taller framed bicycles than Crothers. You can tell they don’t fit the frame geometry exactly.
It’s still very likely that he had them made here in SanAntonio where leather workers were ubiquitous.
Off to the fabric store for black canvas!!!!
