RPPC John Stink, Pawhuska, OK, c. 1910, Osage, Oklahoma
A real photo card with a view of an older Native American man wearing a headscarf and blanket. It also has nice details of a western town which has gotten big enough to have brick buildings. There is a handwritten note to the back: "John Stink, Pawhuska Okla." John Stink (Ha-Tah-Moie) was a local recluse who became known as the "Osage Zombie" when he suddenly revived after a traditional above ground burial. Many Osage subsequently feared and avoided him until his actual death in the 1930s. This shot shows him about after 5 years after the incident, I think. It has a Velox stamp box with diamonds at the corners, dating it to sometime between 1907 and 1914.
Good condition--slight edge wear and a bit of curling and age-toning. Please see scans.
