  • Notes: Reconstruction form a Black & White photograph of Annie Oakley, the legendary markswoman, was one of the leading attractions of the Wild West show during the Glasgow season. By Christmas Eve, she had discarded her more accustomed buckskins and broad-brimmed hat in favour of a chic tartan ensemble. A photograph of Annie thus attired, taken by Messrs Watson & Wilson, whose studios were at 83, Jamaica Street, still survives, and is fully accounted for. There is another photograph of Annie in the same outfit, but whether it was taken on the same or another occasion is not known. A further image of Annie, clad in a more characteristic costume and asserted to have been taken in Glasgow is available via the SCRAN site. Estimated count of the sash from the outfit that comprises a jacket and skirt in an unnamed sett plus a sash in a larger setting of the same tartan. The colours are guess and could have been completely different.
