    [Texas Rangers]. Sergeant Albert. C. Grimes Carte de Visite, 1885. 2.5" x 4". A studio portrait of Grimes identified on the verso by Walter Durbin, "Sargeant A. C. Grimes / Pearsall, Tex. 1885". Grimes served in Company "C," Frontier Battalion, during a long career. He served under no less than four captains, including J. C. Sparks, John Hoffar, G. W. Harrington, and George H. Schmitt. Around the time that this portrait was taken, Company "C" was stationed in Pearsall, Texas, policing small towns in the area and working to quell the unrest that surrounded the "Fence Cutting Wars" plaguing Texas at the time. Backstamp reads, "C. H. Savage, Photographer, 247 Commerce Street, San Antonio, Texas." A previous collector has written his name on the verso in modern ink. Image has lightened with time, but retains good detail; very minor tape damage to verso. Provenance: Durbin Family, Robert W. Stephens, George Jackson Collection.
