"The Finish of the Poker Game" - Posed by Harry Orchard "For Fun"

This photo was shown by the prosecution at the Haywood trial. The one on the right appeared in the book Cabal of Death by Robert Grimmett. I never knew who the other two men were until I recently found the newspaper version (left) of the same image on

Harry Orchard is on the left, Peter Christianson is standing and Andrew Christianson is slumped over the table.

As far as I know, neither of the Christiansons' figured in the trial or murder of Frank Steunenberg. Click on the pictures to enlarge.
