Sells-Floto Sideshow with Bayrooty

This Real Photo Postcard of the 1912 "Sells-Floto Show" (written in pen on bottom margin) is a wonderful, evocative photo that shows a tip in rapt attention as a ticket seller for the sideshow sells tickets from under his umbrella, and on the bally stage an escape artist is is being buckled into a straight jacket by a volunteer. The banner line features "Nubian Giant, Thomas Brockman" and the Bayrooty Troupe. The outside talker is not in the field of view of the photo. The photographer may be "W.E.M." as signed in the negative.
