TEhe Gamblers.png

This 1/6th plate tintype features a cast of characters who would not look out of place around a faro table in Luke Short's Long Branch Saloon in Dodge City or the Oriental in Tombstone, Arizona. This image dates from around the late 1870s. Each man is completely distinct from others in the group and whether or not they were gamblers as implied is open for question. Who they were and what relationship brought them together for the photograph will probably never be known.
