Princess Estella on the Lot, in Front of the Bannerline
Beautiful, though slightly out-of-focus, sepia-toned image of this well-travelled midget performer shown in front the bannerline for H.W. Campbell United Shows. The photo catches the smiling, luxuriously-tressed young performer early in the morning before the show opened. Banners captured are for fire-eater Major Shelby "The World's Greatest Fire King," and Jolly Fat Val[?]." Written in pen on verso: ""H.W. Campbell United Shows, Season 1915." From the Princess Estella Collection.
