    Description

    "DODGE CITY" KANSAS COWBOY BAND DRUMMER, ca 1885. Capitalizing on its image as the "Cowboy Capital of the United States," Dodge City Kansas boosters organized the Cowboy Band in the early 1880s to overwhelming acclaim. Although band members were dressed as cowboys, wearing leather chaps, spurs, and pearl-handled revolvers, they were actually professional musicians from various locations across the country. Here, Carpenter has created an attractive full-length studio portrait of the band's drummer. Image measures 4" x 5.25" and is affixed to Carpenter's attractive dark brown mount with gilt lettering and edging. Overall size 4.25" x 6.5". In very fine condition.
