Description

    Outstanding Paris Card of Interracial Armed and Mounted Posse, circa 1890s. Seven determined looking men (four standing; three mounted) pose outside the large doors of a building in an unidentified town. Although none wears a badge, this group clearly means business. They wear large hats and chaps and several are armed; one stands with his finger on the trigger of a percussion rifle. A black cowboy and a Mexican cowboy are among the mounted members of this tough bunch. Image measures 8" x 6" and is affixed to a 9.5" x 6" backing mount. Photographer unknown. This large-format image is quite handsome and would make an excellent addition to any Western collection! From the Emory A. Cantey Western Collection.

    Condition: Small area of abrasion is nearly invisible against the brick wall of the building. Mount is lightly worn at edges and corners; small water stain at upper right. Generally fine.
