Cayuse War Veterans


Cayuse War Veterans


Sepia-toned image on cardstock of a dozen men seated on bleachers in front of a brick building. The men wear suits, and most have hats in hand. All are bearded, though those run the gamut from chin bears and Vandykes to full groomed beards. The brick building in the background has arched windows with contrasting stone framing, and one window is open at the top.
