Signor Bertolotto's Flea Circus In Washington, DC, 1877

Smaller, thin green handbill from 1877 for Bertolotto's Educated Fleas. The location is somewhat of a mystery, given as "Stamping Dept., Mrs. Seipprecht." While the address 507 Ninth Street, Washington, D.C. seems to have been variously a tavern and small theatre, the designation Stamping Department is confusing. Printed by: "New York Printerium, 29 Ann Street." ................................EDUCATED FLEAS Whose extraordinary performance has received the distinguished patronage of the EUROPEAN SOVEREIGNS. Now open at No. 39 UNION SQUARE.
