Merey "The Armless Wonder" and Her Father In Front Of Their Showfront
* Top 100 *
Trimmed Mounted Photo. Affecting image of 11-12 year old Merey and what must be her father standing outside her show with a beautiful handmade text-only walk-through entrance banner: "Merey The Armless Wonder. The Greatest Novelty of the 20th Century. Don't Fail To See Her. A High Class Show. Ladies and Children. Admission 10¢." Walk-through banners like this one were typical of shows during the early part of the 20th century. A companion image to this shows Merey and her father in front of a Plantation Show banner-- probably another show owned by them.
