Photo Details

These are outlaws who were shot and killed in the Old West. Taking photographs of dead outlaws was a common practice: My own great-grandfather, whose father was a Marshall, had many of these types of photos in his family album.


This is part of the Dalton Gang they were ambushed in Coffey , Kansas during a robbery.

Serious question here, not a joke but if the gang pictured above was ambushed and shot and killed why are they all in handcuffs?

I don't think that is handcuffs, but their hands were tied together like that to hold them in place. I've seen it in other photos with explanations.

Magnifying glass looking at the pic looks like handcuffs - especially on the fellow at the far right - notice the shiny reflection. Still possibly put on after death (to hold hands together.)
