Billy Flake "The KIng of Sword Swallowers"

Letterhead. This otherwise unknown sword swallower uses a stock magician's letterhead with a devil and cards, proclaiming he is "The KIng of Sword Swallowers," though we do not find him listed in any of the usual places. Billy's portrait in a band uniform is used here. Dated "enroute Gasconade, Mo., 3 A[?], 1910." "In a pleasant refined act, For Men, Women and Children, Stop, Look, Listen..."..... Glued to a scrapbook page with a letterhead for Windsor Munnell, a little-known bandleader and music teacher, on the back.
