Good. Photograph. A very scarce boudoir card with Haskaybaynayntayl, or the Apache Kid, from just before his final escape. No date, circa 1890s. Image is in very good condition with the photo measuring 4 3/8" x 6 7/8". There is some loss of paper on the right edge of the mount and the word "Dup" in ink. The caption and publication information on the back are covered by newspaper articles with a discard mark from the Sharlott Hall Museum in Prescott, Arizona with some handwritten notes. This photograph taken at Globe, Arizona has ten prisoners in it, with notations of their names and tribes in the photo. The Apache Kid is the second from the right in the top row, in this last known photograph of him. The article on the back describes the famous November 2, 1889 escape of eight of the prisoners while being transported to Yuma and their killing of Sheriff Reynolds and W. A. Holmes in the escape. The Apache Kid was one of the few escapees that survived very long, and his raids and sightings of him continued until 1894. No records of photo cards were found on OCLC, although the extracted image of the Apache Kid is well known. ; 5 1/4" x 8 1/2" . (Inventory #: 010369)
