Description

    Two Spectacular Outdoor Scenes of Dr. Diamond Dick, the Medicine Man. Known as a flamboyant huckster and medicine man with a penchant for the ladies, George B. McClellan (not related to the Civil War general) renamed himself Dr. Diamond Dick and traveled the Midwest selling nostrums and patent medicines in the 1880s and 1890s. Here we offer two images with the ink-stamped legend: "Dr. Diamond Dick Visiting the Kiowa, Comanche and Apache Indians." The first image shows the very duded-up Diamond Dick at an Indian encampment, selling his wares. The second features Diamond Dick at a rough hunting camp with his (white) friends; Diamond Dick and another man display the turkeys they have shot. Each image measures approximately 8" x 6" and is affixed to a 9" x 7" photo mount; photographer unknown. From the Emory A. Cantey Western Collection.

    Condition: Photographer's mounts are lightly age toned; hunting camp mount bears a large chip (repaired with cello tape) at lower edge which does not affect image. Generally fine and quite handsome!
