Epstein's New Dime Museum

Tradecard. This rare 3-1/8" x 5-1/2" card features a woodcut of a fantastical TURTLE BOY, "With The Body Of A Turtle and The Brains Of A Senator." More than likely the advertisement was for African-American performer George Williams who was billed as the "Turtle Boy." The card also advertises at Chicago's "Epstean's New Dime Museum" a Cowboy Pianist, Lady Whittler, and a Human Volcano.
