    The Tombstone and Arizona Territory Collection

    Tombstone, Arizona: "Shootin' - Lynchin' - Hangin'." A rare poster and two real photograph postcards relating to Tombstone Day in 1947. 1) Poster, 12" x 13 7/8" advertising "Tombstone Day" on October 24-25-26, 1947, which includes "Shootin" - "Lynchin' - Hangin'" in addition to a parade, barbecue, and dancing. The poster includes what had become the logo of the annual Helldorado celebrations, depicting a larger-than-life cowboy standing above the town of Tombstone on a red and black background. The year 1947 was the only time the town's annual event was called Tombstone Day as opposed to Helldorado. 2) A real photograph postcard entitled "Tombstone Days" and showing a recreation of the gunfight at the O.K. Corral, circa 1847, 5. 3/8" x 3.5." 3) A real photograph post card entitled "Tombstone Days" and showing a recreation of the "Johnny Behind the Deuce Episode," circa 1947, 5 3/8" x 3.5." The poster has two marks of tape residue on the edges of the top right and left corners, otherwise it is in excellent condition. The postcards are unused and in fine condition. The poster and postcards provide a glimpse of how Tombstone used its past to promote itself and tourism.
