Scarce circa 1890 silver print photograph of Bob Younger (image size 4” x 2.5”) affixed to a 4.25 x 6 heavy cardstock mount, featuring a scarce image of Younger wearing a suit with black lapels. Written into the photographic plate: "Bob Younger died 4 years after the North Field Bank robbery in Stillwater Minn. Prison." In fine condition, with light silvering to the darker areas of the image.

Bob was the youngest of the Younger brothers in the James-Younger gang. Bob, Cole, and Jim Younger, along with Jesse and Frank James, were involved in a shoot out while robbing the First National Bank in Northfield, Minnesota on Sept. 7, 1876. The Youngers, who were all wounded in the shootout, surrendered two weeks later while the James brothers escaped. Bob was sentenced to life in prison for murder. He died of tuberculosis at the prison at Stillwater, Minnesota, on September 16, 1889, at the age of 35.
