DescriptionHandsome Boudoir Image of Comanche Family, 1888. Scene of a Comanche family and their translator, posed beside their teepee, captured by Indian Territory photographers Lenny & Sawyers. William J. Lenny and William L. Sawyers operated their studio in the town of Purcell in Indian Territory from 1889 to 1891, photographing the Indian tribes who lived on the Kiowa-Comanche-Apache and Wichita-Caddo reservations, and marketed their portraits of "wild Indians" - including tribal chiefs, braves, women, and children - to curiosity seekers back east. Photo measures approximately 8" x 5" and is affixed to a slightly larger cardboard mount featuring Lenny & Sawyers' imprint. On verso, in an unknown hand: "Comanche Camp with Mowzy and wives & interpreter. 1888."
