Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

A Navajo loom to the left and a saxony spinning wheel

I'm not sure they had running shoes back then....

Castle spinning wheel and lots of hand dyed fiber.

You mean the one on the left?

The other one can't be Billy the Kid because Billy was not left handed. The photo that circulated of him, and powered the legend, was a print in reversal of the original. <so it says here>

All those stories are good for business!  Actually, they say he was a skinny short guy and that the reversed photograph is probably true. Much money has been spent trying to get permission to dig up his known relatives, and Billy's possible bones to compare DNA and prove his gravesite location.  Money better spent other projects in my humble opinion.

You are ignoring the Butterfly Effect of a single historical fact being established, upon the hurricanes of insight that follow it.

The gent on the right seems to be ambidextrous.

Although the revolver on his left side seems to be set up as a cross draw. A bit curious. Maybe he handles both with his right hand afterall.
