    Description

    Frank Butler: A Note and Integral Envelope Posted from England in 1889, during the Buffalo Bill Tour, to his Brother William. Postcard mailed by Frank Butler to his brother, Will, postmarked from the Eiffel Tower, August 1889. The world's fair "Exposition Universelle" in Paris in 1889 featured Buffalo Bill's Wild West, a celebration of Thomas Edison and his phonograph, and - the sensation of the Paris skyline - Gustave Eiffel's spectacular tower. Annie and Frank visited several times, usually in company with Indian friends from the Wild West show. Worn and considerable aging as shown, but both message and address in Frank's hand are clear. This lot will be accompanied by a family letter of provenance.
