We had a great thread on the old board, so I hope it's all right to post this here, because I don't remember seeing it on littlebighorninfo:
It's by George Spencer, presumably at Fort Sheridan.
Here's Short Bull by Heyn, which I also don't remember seeing on the previous thread. I know this is the Minikojou thread, but the two men are linked...
The man standing in the centre of the back row is supposed to be Short Bull, but the only other men I recognise are Oglala. He also looks rather tall; on other group photos I've seen, he's not a particularly tall man. It's one of a series of images feauring Jack Red Cloud and Little Wound; I'll post all those I have on the Oglala thread:

This photo's in the Denver Public Library collection, dated roughly 1892. It features Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show at Earl's Court, London and, according to the information suppiled, the men are Arapaho. However... the Man in the centre seems to be wearing a bonnet worn by Short Bull in two other pictures I have. If it is Short Bull, it's obviously a year earlier and could the man on the right be Kicking Bear?

Here's a Trager photo that identifies Kicking Bear as Big Talk, which is ironic when you think of those other Trager photos that identify KB when it's not him; taken at Pine Ridge, 1891.
Good Lance, Big Talk, High Hawk, Two Strike
Detail, in case you had any doubts...
Here's a photo of a man identified as Big Talk. No idea when it was taken or who the photographer was. The auction site I 'borrowed' it from claims it was taken in the 1860s-70s. My guess is that it's at least a decade later.
It's clear some of the men have changed dress. I don't think that's Kicking Bear in the British Museum photo; if it is, he's changed clothing and bonnet. It's the 18901-2 Wild West Show. So who are the other men?
