    Description

    REAL WESTERN COWBOYS GAMBLING - CABINET CARD - ca.1885-95.
    This rare cabinet card features four Cowboys in what appears to be a genuine card game. Many staged photos exist of poker or card games but few of the games were actually being played at the time of the photograph. This cabinet card is in excellent condition with good tonality and the cards, hats and men's faces can be seen. The hats are the straw skipper's that became popular in the 1890s. It appears as though a sheet was behind the men, the photographers Pederson and Graham are unlisted in most modern references. The card measures 4.25"x 6.5". A fine gambling-related photograph from a Texas collection.
