TURN OF THE CENTURY BAD BOYS: CAUGHT IN THE ACT BY TRAVELING PHOTOGRAPHER

The “bad boys” are in town and they are gathered to play a mean game of cards and enjoy their smokes. Traveling photographer, C. A. Johnson has posed the five men in front of a painted river scene. The guys seem quite natural in this gambling milieu. My guess is, that “they’ve been there, and done that”. Its a bit unusual to see cigarettes in cabinet card photography, but they fit this scene perfectly.

  1. I wonder if I could get your permission to use this photograph in a book I am working on. The publisher would give you and/or the photographer an acknowledgment of course. The book is a novel with some graphic materials, like old photographs, laced through it. I’m the author of 8 books.
