Framed 1903 Complaint of Prostitution, with Cabinet Card SIGNED

Philipsburg, Montana: Police Court, County of Granite, City of Philipsburg, 1903. A wonderful piece of Americana, specificaly Western Americana. An official 1903 warrant issued by the Philipsburg, Montana Police Judge Axtell in the matter of Josie Farrell for the crime of prostitution (a misdemeanor). Bail, fixed at $7.50, is here listed as forfeited. A cabinet card of Josie Farrell (taken by W.C. Mills and SIGNED BY JOSIE FARRELL above her image) accompanies the lengthy handwritten complaint, written on State of Montana Justice Court letterhead and signed by the Police Judge Axtell. The warrant itself is very clean and the handwriting clear and completely legible. And the cabinet card as well is crisp and well-preserved. Both have been set inside of a recent, clean black frame. A rare example of turn-of-the-century "justice" on the prairie. Very Good +. Item #13702

Price: $750.00
