In the basement photo gallery of Tombstone’s Bird Cage Theatre there is a photograph claiming to be “the only known photo of Curly Bill.” Indeed, the man does have curly hair. Do you have any thoughts on the matter?

Nobody can say for sure it is Curly Bill, and nobody can say for sure it isn’t.

Tombstone historian Ben Traywick says when examining the photo with a magnifying glass you can see signs of the gunshot wound Curly Bill got earlier at Galeyville. Some Curly Bill aficionados insist it isn’t him.

Reminds me of the controversy as to whether or not Wyatt killed him at Iron (Mescal) Springs. It’s more about which story you choose to believe.
