DescriptionUnusual Cabinet Card Featuring Shooting Gallery Game of Skill, circa 1880s. Probably photographed at a short-lived mining camp, this unusual image features two rough businesses - a shooting gallery and what appears to be a food merchant. The shooting gallery owner stands proudly behind his counter, displaying a rifle. Behind him, a display of plates and images of people at which to aim. Next door, a vested gent leans on the counter of his open-air shop; the shelves behind him are lined with canisters (probably containing food or liquor). In the distance can be seen other small wood shacks, the sort frequently erected in haste at booming mining towns. Photographer unknown. A very unusual subject! From the Emory A. Cantey Western Collection.
Condition: Minor age toning and soiling of mount; moderate overall foxing. Generally fine.
