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.

Excursion to the 100th Meridian, October 1866. Commissioners and Directors of the U.P.R.R.


River City John:
#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.
