    Description

    1887 HANGED MAN CABINET PHOTOGRAPH BY R.M. DAVIS. Although we do not know the identity of the hanged man in this image, we do know that it dates from 1887, the only year that photographer R.M. Davis worked in Denver. Image depicts a large group of men and at least one woman surrounding the gallows where the dead man hangs. A rare Denver hanging. Minor foxing of photo and soiling to mount which bears Davis' ink stamp on verso. In very good condition.
