DescriptionTwo Cabinet Cards of Female Wild West Sharpshooter with Rifle, 1889. Two excellent images by photographer J. Ulrich of New York. Taken at the same sitting, the full-length studio images feature this wild west woman holding her rifle at the ready, and using a mirror to do a backwards, over-the-shoulder shot. She wears a velvet suit with a heavily pleated skirt, and her long wavy hair cascades freely over her shoulders. Images are affixed to Ulrich's gilt-edged, imprinted photographer's mount. Two newspaper articles, about Annie Oakley's death, have been pasted to the back of each image - the story starting on one cabinet card and ending on the other. From the Emory A. Cantey Western Collection.
Condition: Images both show minor age toning and slight soiling along mount edges. Minor wear to mount corners. Moderate crease down the center of the image of Annie holding her gun at her waist. Fine.
