- Curator's comments
- Context: the 101 Ranch belonged to the Miller brothers, and was a 110,000-acre cattle ranch in the Indian Territory of Oklahoma before statehood. The brothers, Joseph, George Jr. and Zack, started a Wild West show on the Ranch in ca 1905, which became a travelling wild west show in 1907.
When this photograph was taken, Geronimo was still being held prisoner at the Fort Sill Military Reservation. Two or three other photographs were taken of Geronimo on this day. In one of them he is driving an automobile, a Locomobile Model C, and Edward Le Clair Sr., a Ponca, is sitting next to him in that image, with two other Native Americans in the back seat of the car.
It is unclear whether Cornish or Prettyman took this image, because while Prettyman left for California in the year 1905, it is known that Cornish kept Prettyman's negatives, and did sometimes put them under copyright protection in his own name.
