This is a cool bit of random news; a Billy the Kid portrait, the only "known authenticated portrait of the notorious outlaw," has sold for $2.3m at an auction in Denver recently. The tintype is believed to have been taken in 1879 or 1880 in Fort Sumner, New Mexico. Just a really interesting piece of photography histroy.
