Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Full leather binding with gilt edges, the album contains 43 photographs, mostly CDVs. The most interesting of which depicts Charles Ryan who was the victim of a bank robbery :The murder victim of the Halifax bank robbery of 14 March 1901 was Charles W. Ryan.  Ryan was one of the three bank officials who were present in the bank at the time that Wesley Keiper and Henry Rowe entered the bank attempting to rob it.  In the gunfire that ensued, Charles W. Ryan was fatally wounded.  Accounts differ as to how Ryan was shot.  Some say that he had his own gun at the bank and when he reached for it a struggle ensued and shots were fired.  Just before he was executed, Henry Rowe stated he believed that he was the one who had fired the shots that killed Ryan - not his accomplice Weston Keiper, although both received the death penalty for their crime.

Condition Report: All of the photographs are in good condition, the album shows expected wear and minor losses.
