Nov. 16, 1930: From the Mid-Week pictorial, this photo’s caption read: “One of the largest and most complete collections of guns privately owned by an amateur collector is possessed by Louis Epelley of St. Louis, who has been gathering these ancient arms for the past thirty years. His collection, which contains more than 300 guns, occupies the better part of his home and little cigar store. The oldest arm in the collection is a flint-lock Turkish gun with pike butt and stock of brass, inlaid with with silver, and was taken in the Battle of St. Gotthard in 1613, when the Christians won their victory over the Turks.” Here, he held the ancient Turkish gun.
