Annie Oakley in her later years

"Annie Oakley, with gun Buffalo Bill gave her"

From the New York World-Telegram and the Sun Newspaper Photograph Collection, Library of Congress.

Long after her formal retirement from the traveling exhibition circuit, Annie Oakley took part in a charity benefit program in 1922 in Long Island, New York. This photo was presumably taken at that event, and would have been taken about a month before her 62nd birthday.
