It's interesting when items related to our stories turn up in the world today. I just saw an Antiques Roadshow episode where a man had a book with three wanted flyers in it for Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.

Value today? Guess . . .

$40 - 60, 000.00 or more. Wow, what would our boys think? The flyer worth more than they were!

Sounds like a plot bunny to me. Hm . . .

Wow, that's really interesting, Helen.  Your Antiques Roadshow sounds more interesting than ours.  Outlaws never come up.  A definite plot bunny, I'd say.

Helen ,I had the same thought when I watched that episode last night.  What I found interesting in particular were the books in which the wanted posters were pasted -- old hotel registers.  Apparently the hotel had used its old registers to keep track of its set of wanted posters (put out by Pinkerton's) -- the folks on the show were guessing so they could check it against newly arriving guests.  First facial recognition checks?  The registers were from the late 1890s.

Good point, Riders. I missed the information about what kind of books they were - I tuned in part way through. It's funny, I remember in my own story having a certain person who runs a hotel and saloon note that she kept up on the wanted posters due to her business. I never dreamed that it was really true in that way!
