Buffalo Ranch Real Wild West Show Poster AP1212
Lithographed poster, 21 x 56 in. (frame is 23" x 58"), promoting the Buffalo Ranch Real Wild West Show and its various acts featuring Cowboys, Cowgirls, Indians and Mexicans.A wonderful display of the pageantry of western color, excitement, exoticism and history that marked these entertainments as world-beaters. I mean... Camel Races! A Real Indian War Dance!
Formed around 1910, the Buffalo Ranch Real Wild West Show was one of many traveling rodeos that followed in the successful footsteps of Buffalo Bill. This particular show poster seems to borrow heavily from its predecessors, the Buffalo Bill Wild West Show and the Miller Brother's 101 Ranch, by replicating both pictorial and textual themes for its content. Printed by Riverside Print Co., Milwaukee and Chicago.
