RPPC of Soapy Smith's Skull

Another shot of Soapy Smith's Skull (see earlier post here), this time on a real photo postcard.

Yes, the Soapy Smith skull still exists (Skagway, Alaska). It was painted on a natural rock formation of a human skull in the 1920s as a tourist dedication to Klondike gold rush bad man, Jefferson Randolph "Soapy" Smith. I use the skull on my Soapy Smith website as he was my great-grandfather.
