    Description

    Geronimo in His War Bonnet: Silver Gelatin Cabinet Photo. A 4" x 5.5" photo on a 5" x 7" mount of the Apache leader in native dress and feather headdress. Printed beneath on the mount: "GERONIMO in his famous warbonnet/ Copyrighted by E. W. Logston, Lawton, Okla." The word "Copyrighted" has also been inserted across Geronimo's chest in the image. Likely taken circa 1905 as Geronimo, still a U.S. prisoner at Fort Sill, was allowed to travel into Lawton for interviews with his biographer. A rare image. Some light soiling to mount. Imprint is faded but readable and the image is excellent.
