A photo of Wild West showman and buffalo hunter Buffalo Bill wearing a surprisingly flowery embroidered coat. This photo was taken in 1889 when he would have been 43 (I think). Apparently he had to have a kind of hunt-off against William Comstock to earn exclusive right to use the name ‘Buffalo Bill’. He won the buffalo-shooting match by killing 68 bison to Comstock’s 48.
The photo has been expertly re-coloured by History In Color – which version do you prefer, the colour or black and white version? You can see both versions below:
