    Description

    Two Large Arena Photographs. In these two boudoir-sized photographs, Napoleon Sarony tried to capture action in the arena at Erastina, Staten Island, in 1886. In the first, Indians have put up a prop tepee and are reenacting a battle. The second photograph shows a horse race at its climax. Both scenes are very rare. Few photographers attempted such group action shots in the Wild West before about the turn of the century. This lot is part of the Ed Goodman Collection.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
