Pair of albumen prints, each about 6 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches, on original plain mounts, captioned in negative, with "Group of Indians" numbered 1122; wear to mounts with slight edge loss to images, minor foxing. New York, circa 1890

        The New-York Historical Society has a related view (also "Group of Indians," #1123), which they date at 1890 and identify as from Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show. The woman toward the left in the foreground looking down at her holster is quite possibly Annie Oakley.
