Buffalo Bill, Sitting Bull, and Wild West Troop Members Photograph

Silver gelatin photograph on slightly larger mount, 5.5 x 4.25 in., negative taken ca 1884-1885, printed ca 1890s. A fine image showing Sioux Chief Crow Eagle, Buffalo Bill Cody, W.H.H. Murray, Sitting Bull, Johnny Baker, and interpreter William Halsey.

While Buffalo Bill and Sitting Bull need no introduction, the other subjects include William Halsey, Sitting Bull's interpreter who was employed by Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show with the chief; Johnny Baker, Cody's foster son who accompanied him on the show circuit and was thought to be a sharpshooting attraction in his own right; and W.H.H. Murray, often called "Adirondack Murray," a naturalist and writer who greatly influenced the conservation movement of the late 19th century. Little is known about the final subject, Crow Eagle. 


Even toning. Minor corner/edge wear to mount. Otherwise in very good condition.
