    L.A. FURLONG CABINET PHOTOGRAPH OF CHIEF BULL THUNDER. Medicine man Bull Thunder is pictured in this 4" x 6" sepia cabinet card. The elderly man wears store-bought slacks, striped shirt, and straw hat, and stares directly into the camera lens. He is draped in a white blanket and seated in a high-backed chair. Image is affixed to a slightly larger photographer's mount, which features the attractive and decorative imprint of "L.A. Furlong, Halstead Kansas" on verso. Penciled notation on verso dates this image to October 31, 1885. Moderate age-toning, but image and mount are otherwise in exceptional condition, with no chips, tears, or discolorations to mar the overall effect.

    Provenance: The Chris Kortlander Collection
