Black Bart - real name Charles Earl Bowles - was the most famous and prolific stagecoach robber of that era, having held up 28 stages in Northern California from 1875 to 1883...Bart was nabbed by Wells Fargo investigators as he strolled along San Francisco's Montgomery Street, did five years in San Quentin, then disappeared forever after his release in 1888...
"I've labored long and hard for bread,
For honor, and for riches,
But on my corns too long you've tread,
You fine-haired sons of bitches." -Black Bart 1877

Original line from Treasure Island:
"Fifteen men on The Dead Man's Chest--
Yo-ho-ho, and a bottle of rum!"
Theme expanded in 1891 in a poem by Y.E. Allison:
Fifteen men on the Dead Man's Chest—
Drink and the devil had done for the rest—
The mate was fixed by the bos'n's pike,
The bos'n brained with a marlin spike,
And Cookey's throat was marked belike
It had been gripped
By fingers ten;
And there they lay,
All good dead men
Like break-o'-day in a boozing-ken—
Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum!
I took this photo in the British Museum In London. If you zoom in you can see the wonderful art on the coins. It is the largest hoard of medieval gold coins ever discovered in Britain. I have only photographed part of it. It consists of 1,237 coins. Found in Fishpool in Nottinghamshire. It suggests the hoard was buried around 1464 after the Battle Of Hexam in Northumberland. Some of the coins come from countries such as, Scotland, France and the Netherlands. The money may have been raised to support the Lancastrian King Henry VI. They think the hoard may have been hidden by a Lancastrian supporter fleeing battle.
