Old West Posters

The Sundance Kid and Etta Place

It’s unlikely there’s a more shadowy figure in the Old West than Etta Place. There is no doubt that this was not her real name, as Place was the maiden name of Harry Longabaugh’s (the Sundance Kid) mother, and other women that were associated with the Wild Bunch, used the alias as well.

Virtually nothing is known of her other than the fact she was reputed to be a school teacher, but there’s some that say she was a Texas prostitute that Butch Cassidy took under his wing and gave a fake history as a school Marm, so she could have a new start. A stunning, timeless, beauty – she was seldom seen without the Sundance Kid, and they often travelled together as man and wife.


Young Guns Circa 1870 Poster

Young Guns Circa 1870

Charley Utter, Wild Bill Hickok, Buffalo Bill Cody, Texas Jack Omohundro, and Elisha Green.

The photo that this poster was built around was originally taken in the early 1870s. At the time these men were performing in Ned Butlines “Scouts of the Prairie“. As bad as most of the acting was – Hickok’s stood out as the worst. The whole idea of acting was disagreeable to Wild Bill and he left after about 6 months. Hickoks’ disdain can be seen on his face in this poster, and notice how carefully the other men have their firearms staged around them – except Wild Bill: He’s stood his long arm upside down!

Custer and the 7th Cavalry Poster

Custer and the 7th Cavalry

~ Custer and the men of the Seventh rode out to meet their fate and the Sioux Nation, on June 25, 1876 at the Little Big Horn River ~

The officers and their ladies comprise the main part of this poster, with Custer, Reno, and Benteen highlighted for their role in the battle of the Little Big Horn.

It is said that Custer had a dream that disturbed him greatly, just a few days before the battle. In his dream Custer couldn’t find the Sioux under Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse.

The hero of the day for the 7th Cavalry was Captain Benteen who kept his cool under tremendous pressure,  and is credited with saving most of his command from the fate that befell Custer.

Sam Houston
First President of the Republic of Texas

Houston’s accomplishments are legion, including presiding over the formation of the Republic of Texas.

Houston’s political mentor was Andrew Jackson and this veteran of the War of 1812 was a canny military leader. When Mexican General and Emporer Santa Anna crossed the Rio Grande River in the spring of 1836 to force the wayward Texans back into the political fold of Mexico, Houston and the Texicans were ill prepared to engage the superior force.

When the run-down mission called the Alamo was over run and the garrison butchered, Texas demanded retribution, but General Houston stalled and retreated strategically amidst great discontent from his officers and men. When they finally attacked Santa Anna’s forces, catching them completely by surprise at the San Jacinto River on April 21, 1836, they routed a force twice their size in just 18 minutes.

This decisive battle wrested Texas from Mexico and made Sam Houston the first Prssident of the Lone Star State. Texas would eventually join the United States as a State in 1845. The city of Houston, Texas, is named for him.


Posters of the Old WestYellowstone Kelly

Luther Sage “Yellowstone” Kelly was born in Geneva, New York State, in 1849. He joined the Union Army near the end of the Civil war and finished his enlistment in wild Army outposts in Minnesota and the Dakota’s.

After his army stint he headed further west and in the following decade he became as familiar with the Upper Missouri and Yellowstone River valleys as any white man of his time.

Kelly was well educated and very well read, and apparently was prone to quoting Shakespeare when the mood took him. He was famous during his life and known to President Theodoe Roosevelt, and other famous people of the day, including Buffalo Bill Cody.

When Cody was finally successful in getting the Yellowstone River valley declared America’s first National Park, in 1876, Yellowstone Kelly was the man chosen to be the first Park Ranger.
