Speaking of photographs......................... Any one who takes a good picture was usually had to be quite distinctive back then. Plain people just don't come off, you'd really have to look special. Ms. Blinn clearly looks to be very special looking, same goes with Custer or Lincoln or Mary Todd Lincoln (notso pretty, But Distinguished), or with Geronimo or Robert E. Lee, etc..
Bad photo posers can include a number of wild west outlaws or hookers. If you see how ugly Billy The Kid comes off, then you'll understand why there's only one existing photo of him! Hookers always seem to turn up BLANK in their faces, as if they are too sinful to appear on film, their faces just look like white smudges everytime I see one. It also helps to have razor-edged features that Custer or Geronimo have. Patton photographs like old granny from the Beverly Hillbillies, and he talks like an old lady from the south. Albeit, in some better lights, Patton can turn from Granny to Goliath, his stature is amazing and it sometimes looks as if his big boots are about to tramp you like a rat. He's very tall and even HULKING when he really shifts himself the right way.
