Mary Belle "Armless Artist"

This very simple 1958 cartooned card, by "Ripley's Believe-It-Or-Not," for Vita-Brits (wheat thin crackers) of obscure armless performer and artist contains her bio on the back. Mary Belle's hard-to-find biography, "The Armless Marvel, Mary Belle," by Gualterio Quinonas, was published three years after her death in 1949.
