[We sold this rare photograph several weeks ago, but the winning buyer was unable or unwilling to pay for it so it never left our possession. We are listing it again for those who are still interested in acquiring this great example of the work of a famed frontier photographer].............
An original Indian Wars period cabinet photograph by famed western photographer D. F. BARRY of a young soldier in uniform wearing a buffalo coat and gloves, prepared for winter on the Plains. This photograph, circa 1880, is on the mount of the Barry studios at Bismarck and Standing Rock, Dakota Territory. I believe the soldier to be either stationed at the Sioux Indian Reservation with the Bureau of Indian Affairs, or a member of the Army Signal Corps which was responsible for operating the electric telegraph on the western frontier 1867-1879. A great image in need of further research. Size 4 1/4" x 6 1/4", sepia toned, very good condition with normal aging....DAVID F. BARRY [1854-1934] was one of the greatest photographers of the old American west. He opened his studios at Bismarck and Standing Rock, Dakota Territory, in 1878 and operated there until moving to Superior, Wisconsin, in 1890. He is best known for his photographs of the United States Cavalry, the Little Big Horn, prominent Indian leaders, and many notable frontier characters such as George Custer, Buffalo Bill and Sitting Bull. This is a chance to acquire a great original image by this famous photographer of the old west..........Guaranteed original....$3.00 shipping......
