    RARE IRWIN IMAGE OF GERONIMO WEARING UNUSUAL "HORNED" HAT. Taken later in life while imprisoned at Fort Sill, Oklahoma Territory, this unique Irwin photograph shows an elderly Geronimo wearing a heavily fringed buckskin jacket with a striped blanket wrapped around his waist. He leans against a tree wearing a very unusual hat that features two curved fabric horns. Image measures approximately 4" x 5¼" and is affixed to Irwin's slightly larger Chickasha photographer's mount. Moderate water stains appear at lower right corner of mount, but do not affect image. Typical wear to corners of mount. On verso: "Geronimo Chief of the Apache Indian [sic] now a prisoner of war at Ft. Sill." An attractive and unique cabinet of the great warrior chief.
