Hunting buffalo A larger version can be found here:
Waistcoat/vest in the Kelvingrove Museum/Gallery at Glasgow that allegedly belonged to Rain in the Face. Ignore the date; it'll be from the late 1880s/1890 when they became fashionable, especally among Wild West Show performers. Is it his? It was among a collection of items sold by George Crager to the museum when Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show visited Glasgow. Rain in the Face was not involved and the waistcoat appears in one of the Grabill post Ghost Dance photos of Brule and Oglala men (including Wild West Show performers Rocky Bear and Cody himself) incongruously modelled by a white man in a horned bonnet. If I had to guess, I'd say Mr Crager was cashing in on Rain in the Face's fame by claiming it was his. There is, I believe, at least one other photo of it seen behind the scenes at a Wild West Show.

is it possible to get a better resolution of the 1st photo of the Little Bighorn series by S. F. 'Dick' Fansler (John Grass and Rain in the Face in 1886)? I'm not convinced yet, that the 2 persons are Grass and Rain. I tried to blow up the picture, but it is difficult. Maybe anyone has a better resolution? Thanks. Gregor
