    Company "F" Frontier Battalion

    [Texas Rangers]. Company "F" Frontier Battalion Cabinet Card, circa 1882. 6.5" x 4.25". A group portrait of Texas Rangers Company "F". They are posed four seated on the ground and six standing, all with rifles and pistols. Pictured standing are, left to right, J. W. Buck, Pete Edwards, Captain Joe Shely, George Farrow, Brack Morris, and Charlie Norris. Seated, left to right, are Washington "Wash" Shely, Tom Mabry, Bob Crowder, and Cecilio Charo, a Mexican Texas Ranger. Group portraits of Frontier Battalion Rangers are scarce. Photographers produced them only for the Rangers themselves-not for public consumption. Lengthy inscription in modern ink on verso discusses the photograph. Moderate foxing to recto and verso with dampstaining and minor wear to edges of card and corners of photograph.

    ‡ The owner placed a late bid on this unreserved lot and repurchased it, subject to applicable commission.
