Center & right are definitely brothers but this pic is often misidentified as Frank & Jesse James.

Interesting photo, I really appreciate vintage pictures. One thing of note albeit not hat related, is the boots. When I wear square toe boots I've gotten "Those ain't REAL cowboy boots,they didn't have square toes back in the REAL cowboy days!, Thats a new fad!" From my observations square toes was prevalent from the 1600s up to the 1900s. In photos from the American Civil War and old west I see a majority of boots were squared off in the toe. Although in some the sole is square while the toe upper is more rounded. Not until the 1900s through the 20s do you see very pointed boots become prevalent. Not that they didn't exist before then there are always exceptions, but they were the exception not the rule imho.

Until boots & shoes were made on lasts there was no right & left side. I’m not aware of any square toe like you are thinking. These pics are 1870’s - 1880’s.

With all due respect, that top photo ain’t the Pitchfork-they’re light on tall evergreens. Nice creases, interesting that they’d allow a photo using a makeshift “runnin’ iron,” an expedient rustler’s tool. The third photo, those look more like ‘70’s ”wallabies” to me, and the contemplative gent on the left end seems to be wearing sunglasses. Neat photo, though.
