Mary, a contributor to the Renaissance, sent in this photo that she took at the Buffalo Bill Historical Center in Cody, Wyoming. Pictured above is a nice hoop spring pince-nez. The next step was to find a picture of Buffalo Bill wearing pince-nez. Mary did an extensive search and she couldn't find anything. Taking the initiative, she wrote to the center and asked if they have a photo of Mr. Cody wearing pince-nez. She is awaiting their response and will keep us informed.
Thank you Mary for the photo and story of historical interest.
