Camillus S. FlyCamillus S. Fly (1849-1901)

Camillus Fly is recognized as one of the greatest of the frontier photographers. Though a native of Missouri, Fly experienced the most significant years of his career in Tombstone, Arizona. Fly’s Photography Gallery was located next to the O.K. Corral, recognized site of the famous gunfight. (The fight actually took place in a vacant lot behind the O.K. Corral, between Fly’s Studio and the Harwood House.)
