    Photograph Postcard of Captain Seth Bullock, 1905. Seth Bullock was the first U.S. Marshal of South Dakota and later became Sheriff of Deadwood. Still later, he led the Black Hills Forest Rangers. A longtime friend and fellow lawman, Theodore Roosevelt, invited Bullock and fifty of his cowboy friends to march in the newly elected President's inaugural parade. This image of Bullock surrounded by cowpunchers was taken at that time, and bears this caption at the lower edge: "Capt. Seth Bullock and Cowboys, Washington DC, March 4, 1905. Published for Fishel & Co., Deadwood, S.D." Photo postcard appears to be a photo of a photo, as the original reveals a crease down the middle which this postcard does not bear. A perfect addition to any Deadwood collection! From the Emory A. Cantey Western Collection.

    Condition: Postcard shows light wear at corners and edges. Small crease at lower left corner. Fine.
