Lot 104: Unsigned 5.25 x 6.5 cabinet photo of Geronimo by William Irwin, showing the legendary warrior in a fringed leather shirt while holding a revolver. Period pencil notations on the reverse read, "Geronimo. The notorious Apache Chief now a Prisoner of War at Ft. Sill." Also bears a pencil identification notation at the top of the mount. In very good condition, with soiling and chipping to the mount, a trimmed bottom edge, chip to the upper left corner of the photo, and some stray ink marks at the bottom the majority of flaws are confined to the mount, leaving the wonderful image largely unaffected.
