    A copy of this photo is at boxrec.com/media/index.php/File:Rickard21.jpg. That copy is dated 18 May 1921 with no indication of the source for the photo or evidence for the date. www.fighttoys.com/rickard photo pair 1921.htm also date photos from this shoot to May 18 1921. This appears to be an offer for sale of actual photos, and indicates that there is a typed identification: TEX RICKARD Preparing for the big fight May 18, 1921. The big fight was on July 2, 1921.

    There are two dates on the negative: 9/23/27 and 5/18/21, which means that the photo was taken in 1921 and reused in 1927 by Bain News Service IMO.

    Thank you all for your comments. Sometimes there are multiple dates on the negatives which indicate dates of creation as well as publication and reuse, as B-59 points out. We will add more information to the records for Tex Rickard when we update.
