Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid

I came across this on Goodshit and just had to post it. This is a picture of part of Butch Cassidy’s ‘Wild Bunch’, sometimes referred to as the ‘Hole in the Wall’ gang. It is a computer colourised version of the photograph that can be found on Wikipedia if you look for ‘butch cassidy’s wild bunch’.

From left to right: the Sundance Kid; News Carver (usually just called ‘News’); the Tall Texan; Kid Curry; and finally on the right-hand side end, Butch Cassidy.

The Wild Bunch claimed they always tried not to harm or kill people in their robberies and Butch Cassidy himself claimed he never killed man. However the truth was a little different and the records show that all members of the gang had, and did, shoot people dead; especially lawmen who pursued them.

See. They really did exist and they really did rob trains.
