Carnival Hypnotist

Incredible document of a carnival or itinerant hypnotist holding his hand over a man's head who is clearly "under" his spell-- whether posed or actually hypnotized it is hard to tell, though I would guess posed for the camera. The subject's tongue hangs out and he appeared to be asleep, posed in front of a makeshift backdrop outdoors. On verso: Pre-1907 undivided postcard back with generic "Place One Cent Stamp Here" stamp box.
