I'm always searching for old photos with Henry Rifles.
Not easy, i found more pics with Spencers than Henrys.
Here are some pics i found in books or on the web.
















If you have other photos of Henrys, please add them.

Here is a photo from the old days in British Columbia.  Judge Begbie was the first judge in 1858 and sat until a month and a half before his death in 1894. He  held a similar role to Judge Parker in the Indian Territories.  Here he is with a group ??(while on court circuit.)??  Begbie is the bearded gentleman in tall boots sitting on the right. The fellow with the bowler in the center holds a Henry.  I see at least two ML SxS shotguns.

PS:  I looked up the archival source.  The photo appears to be reversed in the book I scanned.  The photo is titled "A group of colonial officials at rest during hunting..." at Grouse Creek.  About 1870.  The one with the Henry is Governor Frederick Seymour.

PPS:  To narrow it down further, Seymour succeeded Sir James Douglas a Governor in 1864.  He died in June of 1869.

P.S; 29Jan11;  I found further info on this photo.  It was taken in The Cariboo during "The Grouse Creek War" in 1867, specifically, early in August. There was a public "meeting" in Richfield, now known as Barkerville, concerning an appeal to Judge Begbie over a disputed mining claim.  Ironically the cases was decided against a party who had lobbied for a chage in the Gold Fields Act that now acted to his detriment. The threatened breach of the Queen's Peace was averted.

Thanks for the pic, Sir Charles .

The problem is, when i search for pics with an Henry, i find out that most of these Henrys are 'Improved Henry Rifles'.
Like this one.
 First-Red-Feather-of-the-Wing,Nez Perce with Henry Rifle

But it is an 'Improved Henry'.
When you read the books of James Willard Schultz or Finn Burnett, they  call an Improved Henry never a Winchester 66.
They wrote:.... he had a Henry Rifle. But what kind of a Henry?

Nice pics....

A little surprising to see how many of these, according to the position of the followers, are....empty.

Here is another pic of Luther Sage 'Yellowstone' Kelly, taken by Stanley Morrow.


I think he is wearing the same clothes at in the pic no.7 from my first post.
It looks to me, that at the buttstock is a sling swivel. I didn't know a 66 with a sling swivel.
So it could be the Henry from pic no.7.

I've seen that RR photo before & always love it!! Notice the dog atop the woodpile who turned its head during the exposure.

Howdy

Thanks for the photos. I like that old RR photo too, I have it in one of my RR books.

In a slightly similar vein, have you ever come across a photo of an iron framed Henry with a casehardened finish, rather than a blue finish?

Thanks

It might be hard to tell in an old B&W photo.  After a bit of age casehardening takes on a silvery finish.  I don't know how long that takes.

#6 of the gentleman in the mechanic's cap with his arms folded resting on the muzzle of his Henry has me curious as to the type of revolver on his hip. There may be a bit of stretching in the image, but that holster sure looks to have been made for a long barrel.

Nice pics, Lonesome. Thanks.

Kind of interesting on how many are holding loaded rifles. Most appear empty, but a few are loaded to the gills.

DJ, here is a pic of the Henry Rifle sn.2 .
It's just one of three known existing examples having case-hardened iron frames.
There is  a Brass frame Henry Rifle with the sn.2 too.



A pic from the Iron Frame Henry Rifle sn.157.

and a pic of the Henry Rifle sn.155

Hey Lonesome

Thanks so much for the photos of the case hardened iron frames. I can't see much of the case hardening, but I will take your word for it. At least I know now that my Uberti case hardened 'iron frame' is kind of authentic.
