Ferris Wheel & Banners
Circa 1908 image of Ferris Wheel with two single-o banners in the background and men in straw boaters looking at camera. One banner is entitled "PHILLIPS FINE ART EXPOSITION" and featured portraits of many different people that are hard to recognize, and probably is a wax show. The second banner shows Punchinello, i.e. A Punch & Judy show. See catalogue #393 taken at the same carnival. In reverse printed on card "Somerville, NJ." On verso: AZO ◊'s Stamp Box
