    101 Ranch (circa 1910s). Stock Poster (20.5" X 28").
    The 101 Ranch, which was founded in the Indian Territory of Oklahoma in 1879 as a cattle ranch, holds an important place in film and entertainment history. Founded by Colonel George Miller, the ranch passed to his sons upon his death in 1903. Inspired by their neighbor and friend, Major Gordon W. "Pawnee Bill" Lillie, the Miller Brothers established their own Wild West show, and by 1907 were touring and performing nationally. During the next several decades - the show was retired for good in 1932 - a number of important performers would call the show home, including Bill Picket, Jack Hoxie, Buffalo Bill, and, for several years prior to relocating to Hollywood, a young Tom Mix, destined to become one of the biggest stars of the silver screen. The Ranch itself is gone now, it's buildings parceled off and eventually torn down, but its place in U.S. entertainment history survives, an important part of our American heritage. Paper from the 101 Ranch is extremely scarce, and we are pleased to bring this ultra-rare piece to the attention of poster collectors everywhere. A beautiful stone litho poster, the 9" X 20" location snipe is attached at the bottom. The poster itself has some slight crossfold separation, minor edge tears, pinholes, and some overall soiling, but still presents very nicely, a wonderful touchstone to the entertainment out great-great grandparents enjoyed nearly a century ago. Very Good.
