They have sombreros, and serapes, and a variety of Civil War revolvers, including an 1858 Remington, two 1860 Colt Army revolvers, and an 1851 Colt Navy. Two of the people are holding a cloth sign reading, Boundary Mexico & United States.” 

A cabinet card portrait of a family with two boys wielding swords, and a bayonetted rifle and 1842 Aston style pistol. One of the women is holding a white kitten. There are labels on the reverse saying that the image was taken in Sept. /89 by Hubbell Fisher. There is more that is not legible.

A Placer County albumen print photo of a man dressed as a frontiersman, with old percussion rifle, powder horn, military style percussion revolver holster on his belt, tall boots, and a dog at his side. There is an extensive and largely illegible inscription on the reverse. It appears that this is an old copy of a broken ambrotype. There are mentions of Dutch Flat, and Grass Valley.
