    Description

    Jesse James Poster With Black Subjects. The early graphics and absence of any reference to movies suggest that this poster is promoting a live stage performance, circa 1890s. The top margin reads, "THE SENSATIONAL WESTERN LIFE DRAMA JESSE JAMES - THE MISSOURI OUTLAW". Below this is a lithograph of a middle-aged black couple standing uncomfortably at attention as if in ranks. The man is armed to the teeth while the lady is shouldering a broom. Below is the caption, "LIGE & ELIZA MAKING SOLDIERS' 'TOES OUT'. Without seeing the production it is impossible to speculate on what relationship, if any, these characters have to Jesse James. A small split to the left margin, light soiling, and a small crease mentioned for accuracy. All in all, a highly colorful and highly collectible piece in a custom wooden frame, 27" x 41.5".
