Chris, here was my post:
Let's start at the beginning. You are comparing apples and oranges.

You are comparing the early 1900s Wild Bunch cabin with an early 2000s completely reconstructed cabin, using new and old materials. Take a look at the entire array of images of the cabin under reconstruction, here,

One thing that I think confuses lots of people is the west-side addition, added after the Tea Party photo. On the original Tea Party image there no addition, just a single door, on the right hand side of the cabin, and to the left of the door, two windows.

The addition was constructed just to the left of the door, leaving the door as the entrance. When we visited Raul Sepulveda in 1986, that was the door he let us in, and it opened into his kitchen. Here's the important part. The addition covered the window to the left of the door, leaving only one window visible from the outside. At some point, perhaps at the very same time the addition was built, a new window was punched out to the left of the addition (essentially, between the two original windows) and the far left-hand window was converted into a door, thus completely changing the look of the west side of the cabin.

In short, one cannot compare the early 1900s west side of the cabin to the post-addition west side because they are entirely different. Dan

The red lines you drew on the cabin are not a question. Dan

    You never answered my questions about the tea party cabin. Your story doesn't make sense. Its time you admit its not the same cabin

        Dan, It is not their cabin. Its much shorter than the Cholila cabin and has many other inconsistencies. Chris

          Back to my provenance question, if it can be established that it actually came from Sundance, like Sundance sent it to his parents with a note on the back that said something like "Hey Mon and Dad,... more

            Bob, Ha. Dream on, my friend Even if Butch, Sundance & Ethel jumped out of the photo singing "Down Cholila Way," the dead enders would still balk. It's a blood sport, not a history discussion. Dan

            Im going to disagree. I don't care if there is provenance with the Tea Party photo, the cabin is not theirs. Could be them, its yet to be seen, but the cabin is not theirs. "All of the accusation... more

              I said: "accusation back and forth of manipulation." Isn't that what You Dan and Mark have been doing, accusing each other of manipulation: I was just making an observation. I was not trying to be... more
