Richard,
Great photo, but we need a bit more info.
What is the story behind the photo, is this a family member or taken in West Yellowstone perhaps?

Kevin, I'm glad you asked. I found another copy of this in a family photo album. I wish I knew more. The caption "Bootlegger & Gunman -"In person"" may have been in jest or the character may have had an interesting story.
The photo was taken at Grandfathers Garage which was the same construction as the Big Store on the corner in West Yellowstone. I mentioned before that when the garage was torn down in the 60's I found a Model T brake handle used as re-bar in the foundation. That handle is mounted on my Speedster.
Dennis, apparently Buffalo Bill did frequent the Family store but this fellow is not flamboyant enough to be him.
