Anyone know who this is? I was looking for Snell pictures on liveauctioneers and I came across the following group. One of them - the first, I think - has verso with imprint of E.B. Snell. Not all photos maked with Snell's name were his; on the same page, there's a Notman photo of Sitting Bull with Cody in a Snell mount, for example. Is it me or does this man bear a ballpark resemblance to Red Cloud? Of course, Snell was based in Kansas and the bulk of his photos I'm familiar with were of Southern Cheyenne, probably from about 1885.
This one is clearly a post-1884 Scott - from the badly painted backdrop:
One platinum print, taken outdoors:
The fourth photo - not posted - was of a Winnebago couple

DOES ANYONE BY CHANCE HAPPEN TO HAVE ANY PHOTOS AND/OR INFORMATION OF/OR ABOUT CHIEF COSTALITES/COSTIELITOS AND ANY OF HIS DAUGHTER TERESITA AND POSSIBLY ANY OF SEMINOLE INDIAN-SCOUT JAMES PERRYMAN AS WELL AS ANY ONE WHOM MAY BE RELATED SOMEHOW? I AM A GREAT-GRAND DAUGHTER OF TERESITA AND JAMES, MY NAME IS MARIAN PERRYMAN. ANYTHING WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED.
All the above are currently at the Heritage Auction site. The man at the bottom is Handsome Elk, a Sicangu, so I'm guessing the others are Sicangu too. The man with the spectacles isn't Crow Dog, is it
Here a couple of other handsome Elk photos:
