Owens "The Armless Musician" at A Street Fair

A real photo postcard view of Owens' tented, single-o show at a small town fair. A simple typographical banner "OWENS, ARMLESS MUSICIAN" rises above the performer's tent, as a small town parade comes down Main Street. Printed in the negative: "Plainview Streetfair 1907"-- probably Plainview, Minnesota as read in the postmark from "October 23, 1907."
