Buffalo Bill’s Wild West company spent several weeks in Salford in 1887 and the Manchester Museum has some very special, and unique, material relating to this occurance.
In pervious blog posts I’ve detailed this material (https://mancultural.wordpress.com/2011/01/19/the-return-of-red-shirt/) but if you’d like to find out more I’ll be giving a talk this Friday at 1pm in the Museum as part of the Manchester Histories Festival. Please do feel free to drop in but do be aware that space is limited so be punctual!
