1880's Cabinet Card Photo Of Two Hunters W/ Winchester Repeating Rifles & Dogs:
Rare and original, 1880's, Cabinet Card Photograph of two hunters (likely a father and son) with their hunting dogs - both men hold what appear to be Winchester Repeating Rifles!! This wonderful, American Sporting subject Cabinet Card Photo measures approx. 4" by 5 1/2" and is mounted on its original, photographer's card mount (overall size of mount is 4 1/4" by 6 1/2”). It depicts the Hunters standing in the photographer's studio with their hunting dogs at their feet. The younger man at the left holds his repeating rifle "at the ready" while his father holds the barrel of his repeater with his left hand. The butt end of the stock of that rifle rests on the prop rocks on which he stands. Although the Hunters are not identified, the CDV carries the mark on the photographer - M. G. Gilmore of Old Town, Maine - on both the front and the reverse.

Important Notes about Shipping Charges:
The amount quoted for Shipping & Handling is calculated by and is equal to the EXACT amount charged by the Post Office plus a $1.00 "packing fee" - the $1.00 fee is our only compensation for the virgin packing materials we use on all of our professionally packaged boxes as well as our cost for the salaried help that does most of our packing - as I am sure you can see, we make NO profit on the Shipping charges and, in fact, our costs are usually greater than the $1.00 fee. Please contact us if there are any issues regarding the cost of shipping.
