    FOUR C.S. FLY BOUDOIR PHOTOS OF 10th CAVALRY AT FORT HUACHUCA, A.T. ca 1880-1890. Known as "The Father of Frontier Photography," Tombstone photographer Camillus Sidney (C.S.) Fly ventured to Fort Huachuca to capture images of the Army's famed Apache-hunters, some time in the 1880s. Offered here are four boudoir cabinets of members of the 10th Cavalry Regiment on horseback and standing in formation in parade dress. In two of the photos, fort buildings can be seen in the background, one of which we have identified as Leonard Wood Hall, a large two-storied building used as the fort hospital. Only two of the four groups are specifically identified ("A Troop" and "I Troop"), but all were a part of the U.S. Army's attempt to quell the Chiricahua Apache threat, and to secure the border with Mexico, in the 1880s. These 7.5" x 4.5" cabinets are in fine condition, with minor soiling and/or water stains along edges of photographer's mounts. Two of the four bear Fly's ink-stamp on verso, which reads: "Fly's Gallery, Tombstone, Ariz. C.S. Fly, Proprietor." A very desirable lot for the discerning Indian Wars collector!
