This one was taken at the old courthouse. There is another similar group photo out there in the world that I don't have that was taken at the Idaho pen. Although the pictures appear in many publications, finding genuine period photo postcards such at this is extremely difficult. They sell for $100's of dollars each. When my boys were still at home and we were into baseball card collecting, I use to spend a pretty penny on a good Mickey Mantle, Willie Mays, Sandy Koufax or Jackie Robinson card. Now I would trade them for a decent Steunenberg, Orchard, Siringo or Meldrum any day. Any takers out there?
You can click on the pic to get a closer look at these boys.
