Billy the Kid’s face restored, c.1880

There is only one known photograph of Billy the Kid – a tintype from about 1880 but it is badly damaged and that makes it difficult to see his face clearly. I have digitally removed the damage from the photograph and, as a professional facial analyst, I have reconstructed the missing parts of Billy’s face.”
