I figured you would like that one of Janis. :D That is a good photo. It looks professionally posed and photographed—I wonder if it was from a magazine story or something.

Bat Masterson was one of the legendary Old West figures (think Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday, Billy the Kid, Buffalo Bill, etc.), though one of the lesser known ones. There was a TV series about him, I believe, back in the heyday of the TV Western. I need to read more about him myself.

Have you seen this one? I have it on my wall! A friend's son is one of the founders of Shorpy.com, and she brought back a few cool pictures for me years ago.

That’s great! No, I’ve not seen that one I don’t believe. How large is the photo?

It's in a frame, but I measured it roughly and I think it's 8x12.

I think it is an early version of noise cancelling headphones, except this one goes way too far. 😂 I googled the guy and he was a real inventor. I'll look at the info on the product and get back to you with more details.

This one is really great. It's a photo of an Austrian boy blissfully excited about getting a new pair of shoes in 1946.
