Sure, he’s best known as the steely nerved Wild West lawman who faced down the bad guys at the O.K. Corral.

But Wyatt Earp may have had a soft and sentimental side too.

Brothers Keith and Brian Collins say they discovered Earp’s personal photo album while picking through a Hesperia antique shop.

Inside the worn, leather-bound album were more than two dozen tiny tintype and carte de visite pictures showing Earp as a child, a teenager and a young adult, they say. They say the album also contains photos of his mother and pictures of two of his three wives.
