    Description

    Two Cabinet Photos, John Y. Nelson Family and Indian Women and Children. This Anderson photo, circa 1886, depicts the Nelson family in front of a stone building. Left to right, standing: Jenny (wife), John Y. Sr, Julie (daughter), and John Y. Jr. (Yellow Horse- wearing headdress); seated are James (son), Thomas (son) and Rose (daughter). Handwritten on the verso: "John Y. Nelson and his family. He married a full blood Indian. He was white, an interpreter and guide for the Indians". Some soiling and a tear at the top, yet a great image. Also, an Elliott & Fry image titled "Group of Squaws & Indian Children - Buffalo Bill's Wild West" that pictures Jenny Nelson and Ella Irving. This lot is part of the Ed Goodman Collection. For more information, please visit this link.
