These (7) news service and SF examiner staff photos contain: a very early (circa 1910's) fight posed photo of Burns; a collectable 9x14" poster of Burns, also circa 1910's (G/VG); several photos reporting his twilight marriage to Nellie Venderlip in 1946. Besides the poster, photos range in condition from EX to MT. Sized from 4x8" to 9x14".
