Lewando Baldwin & Wife

* Top 100 *
CABINET CARD. Evocative image by J. KATZ, Boston of Lewando and his wife. The midget armless performer sits in a chair and his wife stands to accentuate their height difference. She has intense deep-set eyes, and looks like someone you wouldn't want to cross. On verso, written in pencil "...this man is 41 years old, & is 35 inches high, was born without arms, & uses his toes the same as fingers. This picture this woman is his wife. William Yergers, 1905"
