The Last Portrait of William F. Cody ... Buffalo Bill
The card was published before 1952 and the Buffalo Bill Memorial Museum still exists in Colorado. Website is here.
From Wiki: "In 1895, Cody was instrumental in the founding of Cody, the seat of Park County in northwestern Wyoming. Today the Old Trail Town museum is at the center of the community and honors the traditions of Western life. Cody first passed through the region in the 1870s. He was so impressed by the development possibilities from irrigation, rich soil, grand scenery, hunting, and proximity to Yellowstone Park that he returned in the mid-1890s to start a town. The town was incorporated in 1901."
Thank you for stopping by John's Island.

Did you know that Buffalo Bill Cody is buried on Lookout Mountain here in Colorado? I live not that far away. I've blogged about his burial place and nearby museum. The rumor is that Cody, Wyoming was very upset that he wanted to be buried in Colorado and actually tried to steal his body out of the grave! Many heavy boulders were places on top to prevent that.His life story is very interesting!ReplyDelete
