    According to this (PDF document - look for image 09i) the original photo was taken in August 1885 by Montreal photographers William Notman & Son. The feathers were later (in 1904?) added or retouched by F.A. Rinehart of Omaha. Some of these details can be made out from writing on the uncropped image.

    Alright then, though I cannot use it myself, for I'd run the risk of going all giddy under that smouldering gaze and would no longer be able to post coherently!

    He definitely reminds me of someone, but I don't think it's Clark Gable.
