:: Buffalo Bill at Ocean Beach ::

leave a comment »

Thomas Ross , a Bay Area native, now living & working in Seattle, recently put up an installation piece at Ocean Beach recreating a moment in history when Buffalo Bill Cody stood here with members of his travelling group, Buffalo Bill’s Wild West.

This event took place in 1902 right out by the Cliff House (here’s a good rendition of what Ocean beach might have looked like in 1902 for the laying of the Pacific Cable)

Ross’s piece includes 120 pieces that were transported down from Washington, and continues through the remainder of this weekend.

This particular piece is called Buffalo Bill and the Indians on the Beach

small reprint of the 1902 photograph.. they wouldn’t let you photo the larger format piece.
