//INDIANS VS. COWBOYS

I got these photos off someones flickr account..

A series of four hand-colored platinum prints gifted to the Library of Congress by David A. Rector.I only posted my favourite three...check the rest out here.These photos are copyright of Herman Heyn of Heyn Photo, Omaha, Nebraska, 1899.

I have this thing for Indians...maybe it's because their hats are way cooler than cowboy hats...?
