Postcard 5158: Carsell, Warden D. Davison and his pet elk Maud at Buffalo Park (1920])

Postcard Carsell, Warden D. Davison and his pet elk Maud at Buffalo Park

A postcard from the Cox family, sent to Ontario. On the front of the postcard we can see some “Blood Indians on Horse Back”. Some wear plains-style war bonnets, which (later?) become associated with “Indian” stereotypes even in Eastern tribes where there was no such tradition. You can also see some native riders in more “European” style clothing on the right, with their hats clearly visible. This image was copyrighted in 1910, so we know that this photo can’t have been taken after that date.
