    A C. S. Fly Photograph of Geronimo C. S. Fly was a famous photographer at Tombstone, Arizona and captured many of the famous faces of the Old West and Indian Country, few more famous than that of the Indian warrior Geronimo. In this 8 1/2" x 5 1/4" cabinet card, Fly captures the image of the great warrior on horseback in an outdoor setting, grim-faced with a kerchief around his head. On the back of the photograph, Fly's printed notes indicate the photograph of the Apache chief was taken 'before the surrender to General Crook in the Sierra Madre mountains of Mexico'. The printed notation goes on to remind the viewer that Geronimo 'escaped March 30, 1886...the most fiendish, cruel and bloodthirsty of the Apaches now defying the United States and Mexico'.

    This photograph has four small nail holes, one at each corner, and bears the C. S. Fly copyright stamp dated 1888 at Tombstone, Arizona at the bottom right front.
