Myra Maybelle Shirley Reed Starr (February 5, 1848 – February 3, 1889)she was known as Belle Starr,  a queen of Oklahoma outlaw. In 1880 she married a Cherokee Indian named Sam Starr and settled with the Starr family in the Indian Territory where she learned ways for organizing, planning and fencing for the rustlers, horse thieves and bootleggers.

the old-time street vendor who sold soap, tea, potatoes, etc. he recorded the sales on the big book.


it’s only on the Heritage Festival where you could encounter around twenty living historic characters who told you their real-life stories along the avenue. unfortunately, i only got three of them on my cam cause they were out only for 2 hours while there were also the shoot-outs, dances, and choirs performed in some different spots at the same range of time.

i added some vintage effects on these three photos.
