Hi, gang.

What is the current information regarding Alexander Conlin being in photographs with famed confidence man, Soapy Smith? Has there been any confirmation or consensus?

As you may recall the idea was originally brought forth by the late John Pomeroy, but as of yet his data has not been located so before my Soapy biography is published I would like to know. Has anyone really studied the photographs in question and come up with an opinion? Thank you for your help.

The Photographs in question. Sorry about the poor quality. These were the xerox copies sent to me by John Pomeroy over a decade ago.

Here are better photographs from my collection. This will hopefully help your decision.

Two cropped photographs taken inside Jeff Smith's Parlor (1898) of the man John Pomeroy believed was Alexander Conlin...what do you think?

Photograph taken outside of Jeff Smith's Parlor. The man in the middle is the one John Pomeroy believed was Conlin. Your opinion?

David Charvet, would you be so kind as to give your detailed opinion about the photographs and whether you believe it to be Conlin or not? Thank you.

As some of you already know, I have this post listed on several magic and history forums. So far not one person has stepped up and said they think it is Conlin. Is there anyone who believes it is? I am looking for the opinions of those particular people.
