TURN OF THE CENTURY BAD BOYS: CAUGHT IN THE ACT BY TRAVELING PHOTOGRAPHER

The “bad boys” are in town and they are gathered to play a mean game of cards and enjoy their smokes. Traveling photographer, C. A. Johnson has posed the five men in front of a painted river scene. The guys seem quite natural in this gambling milieu. My guess is, that “they’ve been there, and done that”. Its a bit unusual to see cigarettes in cabinet card photography, but they fit this scene perfectly.
