  1. Great tintype. The gentleman standing … it’s hard to tell … seems to prefer a ‘cigarillo’. My imagination again, but he reminds me of Butch Cassidy.

  2. This is crazy. Comparing to few known pictures of Cassidy and Sundown, I can’t rule them out (!) … at least look-alikes, especially Butch. (note,Tintypes are reversed, L to R). I’m way too old for this, eyesight is shot/ Sorry. But I had to mention it. Curious.
