Winchester images have a strong collector following as do African American images.
This 1890s cabinet card was photographed in Brainerd, Minnesota.
The man holds a M1886 Winchester rifle across his waist. Additionally, on the ground is a cartridge belt (full of rifle cartridges), a hatchet in a sheath and a stag antler handle belt knife. This guy was certainly well armed and equipped.
There is no identification or provenance on the image.
