Ikeep looking for the invisible man but he's probably sitting in the chair holding the rifle with his boots on. Enuff... nicely done... Incidentally is the trade ".. we rob banks?" ala Bonnie and Clyde?

This brings back fond memories of every black and white western I ever saw!

Cool! So, who do these things belong too?

Rose;

Everything in the picture comes from either my or my wife's ancestors, except the knife, gunbelt and ammo. The boots and spurs belonged to a U.S. Cavalry officer.

Selvin;

The trade of shootist (see John Wayne movie of the same name) was what we would now call a hired gun. Lot of history in those items.

Rose;

I thought about b/w for this, but decided to post the full color version to start. I tried some monochrome, and wasn't satisfied. Here is a faded out, grainy version that seems to fit the subject matter, though.
