    Annie Oakley: Very Early CDV Albumen Photograph, circa 1880s. This photograph of Oakley was taken in front of a circus tent or (Wild West) show tent. No identification on image except the blue stamp on verso "Annie Oakley". Measures approximately 4.75" x 2.75".

    Annie's father taught her how to shoot at the age of eight using his cap and ball Kentucky rifle. At the age of fifteen, she was invited to a match in Cincinnati to shoot against Frank Butler, a marksman shot. Butler was amused that this young girl had challenged him in a shoot off. A year later they were married, and the rest is Wild West history. She first joined Butler's shooing act. That is where she acquired the name "Annie Oakley"; later her and husband Frank were hired to star in the Buffalo Bill's Wild West show.

    Condition: Very fine, couple small spots on image.
