    Description

    [Johnny Baker]. Pair of Important Albums. The pairing includes one scrapbook, 8" x 10", inscribed by Johnny Baker to his younger daughter, Gladys. The main contents are clippings from British papers about Buffalo Bill's 1903 performances with an emphasis, of course, on Johnny Baker. Included are several 6" x 9" photographs of Johnny Baker, scenes in the Wild West, and a superb shot in the arena at Olympia of the entire Wild West cast honoring Buffalo Bill on his birthday, February 26, 1903.

    The second book is a photograph album, 4.5" x 7.25", kept by Johnny Baker. Several of the pictures were taken in and around Tucson, Arizona, and they show Cody's High Jinks Ranch and the Campo Bonito mines (one includes Buffalo Bill himself). There is a wonderful and unique, black-and-white 3" x 5" image of Johnny Baker posing with a group of Wild West cowgirls, seven small snapshots of scenes in the Wild West show, and several family photos. Some photographs have handwritten captions, in unknown hands. The albums are slightly fragile, but the images are well preserved. Only one page in the photo album has images that have been taken out.
