    DODGE CITY COWBOY BAND, KANSAS. IMPERIAL CABINET CARD ca. 1889
    Their musical performance was very high quality, their appearance as cowboy musicians generated the greatest notice. They wore flannel shirts, cowboy hats, leather chaps, spurs and pearl-handled revolvers, their leader kept time with a revolver. In the decade that followed, the Dodge City Cowboy Band was to play in a number of cities across the U.S. Their greatest cowboy band achievement was playing at Benjamin Harrison's inauguration in 1889.
    This great Imperial- size cabinet card on the prairie has the Dodge City Cowboy band next to a chuck wagon and bunch of cowboys branding cattle. The wagon has lettering (L. N. York. C. O. D). Period ink verso "April 16, 1889". 8"x 10" Llight contrast, foxing upper left corner, small cut lower bottom corner of sepia.
