ABOUT THIS IMAGE
Taken May 1937, Tombstone, Arizona, United States
(Library of Congress)
"Travellers pass by the Boothill Graveyard, where over two hundred outlaws lay interred - victims or perpetrators of suicides, shootings, hangings. 'Boothill' gets its name from the number of men who died in violent circumstances wearing their boots, adding to its considerable reputation of being one of the most dangerous places in the wild west.
Amongst the dead are characters bearing names such as Jesse ‘Three Fingered Jack’(a train robber left to die by his friends in a shootout) Dunlap, Geo. Johnson (hanged by mistake over a horse) and Lester Moore, (died in a shootout over a package) whose memorable marker reads, ‘Here lies Lester Moore, four slugs from a .44, no less no more.’"
– Jordan J. Lloyd
This historical photograph has been meticulously researched and rendered into colour from a black and white original by a skilled artisan, continuing a craft tradition that has existed since photography began.
