Extremely rare photo of Billy The Kid when captured at Stinking Springs, December 24th 1880. Pat Garrett is clearly recognisable extreme left and Bob Olinger is next to him. Billy is on the extreme right where a deputy aims a Colt revolver at Billy's head. One of Billy's compadres, Charlie Bowdre, had been killed in the encounter.

Charlie Bowdre rode with Billy the Kid and cowboyed around the Fort Sumner, NM area. He ended up dead at Stinking Springs when a sheriff posse shot him. They found this photo in his clothing; the blood stains are Bowdre's.

BILLY THE KID (William H. Bonney, William Henry McCarty, 1859-1881). American gunman and frontier outlaw. Legend claims he killed 21 men, but most likely it was somewhere between 4 to 9. Relatively unknown during his brief lifetime, his status grew to legendary proportions after his death at age 21. The Kid was killed by lawman Pat Garrett.

The kid: The only known photograph in existence of Billy the Kid is the one above. (The tin-type recently sold for more than $2 million; any other purported photo of the Kid is a look-a-like fake). It is in fact a reverse image - the Kid was holding his rifle with his left hand when photographed.
