The Wild Bunch with Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid

"The Wild Bunch"
On August 13, 1896, Butch Cassidy and his gang held up the Montpelier Idaho Bank for $7,165.00.  This was the first robbery credited to Butch Cassidy and "The Wild Bunch".  This photo was taken in Fort Worth, Texas after robbing a Winnemucca, Nevada bank.

This postcard is postmarked in 2014 with a Harry Potter stamp.

Their names are not listed on the card, but they are:
