Wild West Show

Here's a turn up for the book. A recently sold poster depicts the 1887 command performance of Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show for Queen Victoria in London (detail shown). The poster measures roughly 28 feet by 13 feet and was created in 1888. Two command performances of the show for Queen Victoria took place in 1887, the second on 20 June to celebrate her Golden Jubilee. Royalty from all over Europe attended the show, including the future Kaiser Wilhelm II and future King George V (title link). The poster was bought by the Buffalo Bill Historical Center in Cody, Wyoming (CLICK).
