Ali Ben's Oriental Show

The large banner for this show depicts a lounging harem girl who watches as men wearing fezzes fight with scimitars. Smaller entry banners advertise performers Little Egypt and La B[elle] Fatima, though it is unlikely that the original Little Egypt, who danced in the attraction "Street in Cairo" at the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition, was present for this show. More than likely this was one of her many imitators.
