Signed Photograph of William F. "Buffalo Bill" Cody with Johnny Baker
Cody, William F. "Buffalo Bill" (1846-1917). Signed silver gelatin print mounted to 5.75 x 6.5 in. showing Cody in show regalia with a bugler representing a cavalry unit likely assigned to the Wild West Show in 1914. He holds what appears to be a field trumpet under his right arm. The two are posed together in front of a tent in the performer's quarters of a tour stop. Inscribed by Cody at upper right To Gladdis Wright(?) and signed at lower right W.F. Cody / Buffalo Bill / 1914(?). B
Mount toned and with adhesive and paper remnants in the lower margin. Print is very good but there is slight discoloration of the signature from the ink reacting with the emulsion.
