    Description

    Exceptional Buffalo Bill/Sells-Floto Photo Album, ca. 1914. During the 1914-1915 season, Buffalo Bill Cody joined forces with the Sells-Floto circus. Strong-armed to appear with the circus by Harry Tammen and Frederick Gilmer Bonfils of the Denver Post, Cody reluctantly traveled with Sells-Floto for one season - this incredible photo album records that tour. The photo album was the personal property of actor Lawrence Hanley, who also toured with the circus that season, and was later gifted to Harry Tammen. Includes approximately 60 original photographs - one-quarter of which feature Buffalo Bill. He is pictured with troupe members, and meeting and posing with fans and local dignitaries. Included in the album is a great shot of Cody with President Teddy Roosevelt, seated together in a car, a few Roosevelt images in album. Album is bound in brown cloth with gilt lettering on the front cover, overall size 10 x 7". A wonderful addition to any Buffalo Bill collection!
