Tom Thumb's Museum: Bingham Ventriloquist E. Newell

Tradecard. Artist's palette shaped diecut featuring Bingham shown with four vent dummies-- a boy with big ears who looks like an early rendition of Alfred E. Neuman, a gent's butler, a house maid, and a stereotyped black minstrel. This is one of a set of six chromolithograph cards produced by Ballin & Liebler in 1882 advertising a tour managed by H.R. Jacobs of a Variety company starring 'General' Tom Thumb.
