BUFFALO BILL

WHERE IS IT? In a small public garden on the corner of Whitehall Street and Finlay Drive, two blocks north of Duke Street

Not to be confused with the serial killer from Silence of the Lambs, this statue of Colonel William Frederick "Buffalo Bill" Cody riding a bucking bronco is hidden in the Dennistoun area of Glasgow.



The statue was erected in 2006 by Regency Homes to front their new residential apartment block, it marks the former site of the East End Exhibition Centre, where Cody ran his world-famous Wild West show from 16 November 1891 until 27th February 1892. Such was the demand for the show, entitled The Drama of Civilisation, that the centre was renovated to hold a maximum of 7000 seats. While Buffalo Bill was the titular star, the show also features famous sharpshooter Annie Oakley, as well as Kicking Bear, Short Bull and One Bull, who were all members of the Sioux tribe.
