Exceptional Cody family oversized photo: “To Sister May, from Brother, W. F. Cody”

Exceptional 9.5 x 7.5 photo of Cody and his daughter Irma in a horse-drawn carriage, affixed to the original 14.75 x 12.25 photographer’s mount, signed and inscribed at the top of the mount in black ink, “To Sister May, from Brother, W. F. Cody, Xmas 1894.” Scattered surface marks, a small tear to the lower left corner of the mount, and scattered dings and soiling to mount, otherwise fine condition. The image was captured by the Stacy studio of Brooklyn with the Codys posed in front of a hand-painted Wild West Show arena backdrop at Ambrose Park, where he performed from May 12, 1894, through October 1894. This mounted portrait descended directly through the Cody family, inherited by his great-granddaughter and given on loan to the Buffalo Bill Historical Center of the West for most of the last half of the 20th century. Mary Hannah ‘May’ Cody was Buffalo Bill’s youngest sister, who was responsible for selecting his burial site atop Lookout Mountain. A rare oversized photo with an excellent intimate personal association. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
