Buffalo Bill Cody Scotland photos up for auction

Image


REMARKABLE photographs of Buffalo Bill Cody’s Wild West Show, taken during its legendary tour of Scotland a century ago, are going under the hammer in America as part of a sale of rare family photographs owned by the great granddaughter of the famous showman.


Read Frank Urqhart's piece in the The Scotsman

To mark the occasion of the sale a shoot out was organised yesterday in Westmuir Street just along from the original Wild West Show camp site in the East End.
