This color printed postcard features an illustration of a touring schedule for the Midwest area. The 101 Ranch Real Wild West performed circus acts and other performances as entertainers. From 1908-1913, Buffalo Bill joined this group and was one of the performers. There is red text and black print on the front of the card. Indigenous relics and swastikas surrounded the names of the owners and managers. In 1911, swastikas are a symbol of luck in the Western world and it was no longer used after the Nazi association became common in the 1930s. There is handwriting on the back of the card.
