William F. Cody with Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show Management, Series of Eight Photographs

Lot of 8 snapshots, each approx. 4 x 3 in., featuring William F. "Buffalo Bill" Cody posed with members of the Wild West Show's management team. One photograph seems to be earlier, on 4.25 x 5.25 in. mount, of Cody with four other men in a tent. The other seven appear to have been taken at the same time and are outdoor images of Cody with other men, all in suits. One images shows Cody with four men, two others show him shaking hands with one of them. One shows Cody shaking hands with another of the men, the man with whom he had previously been shaking hands now in the front seat of a touring car just behind (the car is right-hand drive). The other three images show a mid-1910s touring car filled with the men in suits. One shows the four in the car with Cody standing behind the vehicle talking to the driver. The other two show Cody in the driver's seat with three of the four men in the car.
