Ray Marsh Brydon's "Believe It Or Not" Show

Handbill. Very large (25x9.5"), peach-colored, two-sided handbill printed on thin newsprint for a show in Erie, PA on "6 Days Beginning Mon. Feb.26," 1934. Brydon uses photos which appear to be "borrowed" from the RBBS sideshow. Similar to the way he borrowed the Ripley's name for the store shows he promoted during the winters of 1934 and 1935. A few of the performers shown-- namely "Giant"Jack Earle, "armless girl" Francis O'Connor, and "midgets" Daisy Earle and Major Mite never appeared with Brydon's show.
