    Mule-Drawn Mud Wagon Stagecoach with Armed Guards, Chihuahua, Mexico, Circa 1890s. Image size 7.75" x 4.5", overall 8.5" x 5.25", Mrs. A. S. Addis, Chihuahua, Mexico photography studio imprint. This spectacular cabinet photograph was taken in front of a Chihuahua, Mexico bank and features a mud wagon type stagecoach which has presumably just taken on a load of money or other valuables. Four well-armed men surround the driver and the locked transit box at his feet. The image provides excellent views of the detail of the stagecoach, its mule team, the architecture of the bank, and the citizenry witnessing the scene. An exceptional image, rich in detail, and in fine condition.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
