Frank James Wild West Outlaw and His Dog Antique Texas Snapshot Photo

  • $ 3,500.00


ORIGINAL HISTORICAL PHOTOGRAPHY

Frank James Wild West Outlaw and brother of Jesse James
who fought for the Confederacy and as a guerilla during the Civil War
and famously went on to criminal exploits in the James-Younger Gang.

After legally escaping full justice for his crimes, he eventually ended up in Texas
where he was a shoe salesman for Confederate serving friends, the Sanger Brothers.

During this time in Texas, beginning 1888, a photo was taken of a stoic James
with his floppy eared hound dog riding in his horse-drawn carriage.

This 1940s era snapshot is a photo of an original 1890s-1910s photo
which is presumed lost, and it inscribed in blue ink:

"Frank James - Jury his dog - Dan 2-10 Pacer Horse"

There aren't many known photos of Frank James and this provides
a rare look into the man during his later years in relative anonymity.
