This 1/6th plate tinytype features a cast of characters who would not look out of place around a faro table in Luke Short's Long Branch Saloon in Dodge City or the Oriental in
Tombstone, Arizona. This image dates from around the late 1870s. Each man in completely distinct from others in the group and whether or not hey were gamblers as implied is open
for question. Who they were and what relationship brought them together for the photograph will probably never be known.
