    Rare 1912 Jack Johnson and Jim Flynn Training Original Photos Group (4). The battle between Jack Johnson and Jim Flynn in October of 1912 was met with no less controversy than any other fight involving Jack Johnson. Jim Flynn, a very tough and scrappy fighter was outmatched and a local Sherriff interrupted the fight to avoid the crowd seeing a white man being bested by an African-American. Offered is a rare group of four original photos taken in connection to this fight. Each 4.25x6.5" photo is mounted to a thick card measuring 5.5x7". Includes: 1) DWA Photo 34 - Tommy Ryan (Chief Trainer) and Jim Flynn; 2) "Jim Flynn at work" DWA Photo #14; 3) Arrival of Jack Johnson and Party at Las Vegas N.M. May 27, 1912 - DWA Photo #91; 4) Johnson Camp - DWA Photo #42. Images are in excellent-plus condition with little signs of handling. Card mounts have modest wear at corners and spots of surface loss from album removal.
