Matthew Broom in Front of the Workshops, 1890

A student, wearing a hat and holding an axe or hatchet, standing in the courtyard of the workshops. 

The written caption says: "Andrew Brohme, an Apache Indian, 21 years old, learning to be a carpenter at the Indian School at Carlisle, Penn. June 10, 1890." 

It seems almost certain that this is student Matthew Broom, a member of the Apache Nation, who was at the school at this time and who would have been the right age, and whose student file says he was training in carpentry.
