COWBOYS COWGIRLS INDIANS AND MEXICANS DAILY DALLIANCE WITH DEATH WHO KNOW NO FEAR OR FAILURE IN RECKLESS FEATS BUFFALO RANCH REAL WILD WEST
Milwaukee, 1910. Creases and closed tears. 6 x 3-inch portion in right edge in facsimile (including "T" in "WEST"). Quite attractive on the whole and in about very good condition. Framed and matted. Not examined out of frame. An attractive, colorful, and action-filled poster for one of the many "Wild West" shows that were formed in the wake of Buffalo Bill Cody's success. The Buffalo Ranch Real Wild West Show was formed around 1910 and produced shows filled with spectacle, as evidenced by this poster, which promises a show "unparalleled in daring and desperate deeds" and "history blended with pleasant instruction for all the people of the land." In the upper portion of the poster is a scene of a man armed only with a knife, battling a charging bull, advertised as "the real Mexican steer contest throwing lassoing & riding the bull." In the background is an illustration of man with one foot on a galloping horse and the other foot on a charging bull. Other illustrations show "home life of the American Indian," Indians bearing rifles riding horses, a woman brandishing a whip and riding a buffalo, the "Royal Mexican Guard" on a line of horses, and "a Congress of American Cowgirls." An attractive poster for a little-remembered Wild West show, and a fine example of the "West of the Imagination.
