    Annie Oakley and Frank Butler: Photo of Shooting Exhibition at Military Fort, circa 1920s. Shows Annie shooting in front of military personnel with Frank assisting her by throwing target balls or 2" metal plates in the air. During World War I, Annie Oakley went to Army training camps and taught new American soldiers how to shoot. Trimmed to card 5.75" x 4.25".

    After attracting large crowds in New York, Massachusetts and other major cites. Annie Oakley & Frank Butler were making plans for another comeback in 1922. Annie had also made plans to star in a motion picture during that year. That same year the Butlers were injured in a horrific automobile accident. Annie's recovery from the accident took more that a year. In 1924, she started performing again, but her health did not last long. By 1925, she was very frail and in failing health. Annie and Frank moved back to Ohio to Annie's hometown near the family, where she wrote her memoirs.

    Fine, a little light on contrast.
