One of the Younger brothers captured in the raid. 3 " x 2 +" gelatin-silver print on a 5 " x 4 +" gray mount, with the blindstamp for Sumner & Son, Northfield on the mount bottom, slightly entering the print area (i.e. the stamp was applied after the print was mounted.) Sumner was the photographer in Northfield at the time of the attempted robbery. "Bob Younger" is written in pen above the print, and in another hand on verso.
 
These images were probably originally issued by the Sumner Studio as CDV's. This is a slight variant of a CDV in a group, 2 of which were by A F. Burnham, Fairbault, Minn. They sold at Swann Galleries in October 1999 for $39,100. That group was said to be identified by Cole Younger in his hand. (Larry Gottheim)
