Winchester Wax Museum- Butch Cassidy's Wild Bunch

In 1906, the Wild Bunch, led by Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid robbed the Winnemucca, Nevada Bank. After a wild celebration that resulted in the now famous photo (from which this scene was created), Butch sent the photo to the bank with a note "thanking them for their contribution". The Winchester Rifle was their loyal companion.
