    "The Duel" Imperial Size Photograph by Chas. E. Emery, Canon City, Colorado. Fantastic photograph of two Wild West cowboys having a duel in a canyon near a non-descript creek in the Cannon City, Colorado area. There are two men standing and watching the duel between the duelists. Both men have nickel-plated revolvers that they drew from their holsters. The man on the right appears to have gotten the first shot off as his gun smokes, hitting the man on left. There is blood on the shirt of the man on the left. The man behind the injured man is trying to catch him before he falls to the ground. Very interesting & historical photograph. Pre-printed verso reads, "Views of Rocky Mountain scenery embracing scenes in the West Mountain Valley and Sangre de Cristo Range, Etc. Photographed by Chas. E. Emery, Cannon City, Colorado. Scenes along the line of the D. & R. G. Ry." Measures approximately 8" x 5".

    Very good-fine, contrast a little light on the right side, with slightly bent corners.
