Old tintype of a left-handed cowboy, from my collection, with his pistol belt and holster spun around backwards for a left-handed cross draw of his gun, see the bullet loops at the front instead of the buckle in the close-up. In the second photo you can plainly see the butt and trigger guard of his pistol facing forward. His hat, shirt, pants, pistol belt and holster are all new and don't show any signs of wear in the photo. I am guessing he is a young cowhand in town who spent his pay for new clothes and a photo to send home.
