“The buff robe is very heavy to sleep under but very warm.” It helps to remove the buffalo from the hide…:D

This thread reminded me of when I photographed John Coates Jr., a jazz pianist who lived in mid-New Jersey and played the Deer Head Inn every Saturday night for decades. He had a whole room full of buffalo memorabilia. One time he said something about liking buffalo, American Bison, and people started giving him stuff. He had an amazing accidental collection of buffalo things from Native American made things to ash trays and lamps. Since they were gifts, he couldn’t part with them so he put them in a room dedicated to the stuff. Wonder where it all is now.

best, dwc
