    Sixth Plate Tintype of Armed Woman Purported to be Sharpshooter Lillian Smith. The young woman in this image is alleged to be Lillian Smith, famed rival of Annie Oakley, and fellow performer in Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show. This image of Smith, posed outside holding a rifle, was found with a number of target cards which had been signed by Smith. Smith appears to be about 14 to 16 years of age in the image, which would be about the time she joined the Wild West Show. From the Emory A. Cantey Western Collection.
