Photographic portrait of John "Chicken Johnny" Brinkley, native of Catalina Island, ca.1885. Mr. Brinkley stands on the stone front step of a wooden shack with his hat in his left hand. A pan can be seen hung from the outside wall to the right, beneath which a pile of tin cans can be seen. Mr. Brinkley is bald with what remaining hair he has at the side close-cropped like his beard. A few other stones sit to the left of his front step. He had only been off the island once in his lifetime, and worked for Shatto.
