I'm a dumba*ss,how do reduce the picture size?

Nebraska--Custer County--South Loup Valley

SUMMARY
In 1985, James L. Jones, great-grandson of the man at the far right, identified the photograph: left to right, Samuel E. "****" Tuck, Maude Tuck, May Tuck, and Jim Roberts, Samuel Tuck's cousin. This photograph shows the Tuck family passing through the South Loup Valley. The Tuck's stopped in Litchfiled, Nebraska, for a while before proceeding north to Montana. At the time the photograph was made, two of the Tuck children, Leona and Ira, were asleep in the wagon and therefore not pictured.

Large and high resolution images allow us to see fine detail and digest material culture tibits!

You do have a point,in the low resolution image you can't hardly tell the guy by the rear wheel is holding a rifle or see he has what appears to be a big knife or skinning set on his belt.

both of theose Ballards are quite healvily barreled. Look to be the Montana model 5 1/2. 45 2 7/8 SS. This one has a rifle buttplate instead of a Sharps Shotgun Butt Plate.
