    ARMED FORT NIOBRARA, NEB. SOLDIER WITH RIFLE, PISTOLS AND BOWIE KNIFE - CABINET CARD ca. 1890-95
    This soldier is identified on the reverse in period ink as, "Jarvis the Tough", and has two pistols, his Springfield rifle, and a Model 1880 Calvary Bowie knife to back up the claim. The cabinet card is gold-rimmed and marked by E. O. Bloom, who is listed as being active in Valentine, Nebraska, a small town just South of Fort Niobrara in 1893. The outdoor image has excellent contrast and tonality, the man's face is very clear. The card measures 6.5"x 4.25. This is a top example of an armed Indian Wars-era Soldier.
