Description

    Nez Perce Warrior "Steps": Fine Cabinet Card Photograph by Bailey, Dix & Mead. A 4" x 6" sepia photograph of "Steps" kneeling with his one good hand resting on a small table. The photograph bears an 1882 copyright and a caption on the verso lists the photograph as "No. 3" in a series of twenty-four photographs issued by Bailey, Dix & Mead of Fort Randall, Dakota Territory. The printed caption on the verso reads: "A Nez Perce Indian, who escaped from his band, while surrounded in the bad lands of Nebraska, by Gen'l Miles, in 1878. He then joined Sitting Bull's band of Uncapapa [sic] Souix [sic] Indians in the British possessions and has followed their fortunes ever since. He lost his feet above the ankles, also his right hand by being frozen, having been caught in one of the severe snow storms, 21 years ago." A fine, slightly soft focus image with excellent contrast.
