Is this the Soapy Gang?

Soap Gang in Skagway?

The above photo is often reported as being of members of the Soapy Smith gang in Skagway, Alaska. Unfortunately there is no source or provenance of this statement, nor are any of the men recognized. I would love to say that it was correct but I have a morbid dedication to the truth. I'm just no fun.
