    T. Croft Cabinet of "Sitting Bull's Mud Lodge," circa 1890. Unusual image of the exterior of an apparently abandoned mud lodge, with large, square entryway. Identified on the negative as "Sitting Bull's Mud Lodge, Pawnee," with photo identification number "13." Although no information can be found on him, it is evident that there was another Sitting Bull - not of the Lakota Sioux, but of the Pawnee - as the famed Sioux Chief Sitting Bull was never known to have lived in a mud lodge. Image is affixed to Croft's mounting card which bears his "Oklahoma City, O.T." imprint.

    Condition: Photo is lightly age toned, with minor sporadic foxing. Photographer's mount is age toned with minor wear to corners. Generally fine condition.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
