Zip & Ashbury Benjamin

* Top 100 *
Wonderful EISENMANN image of Zip in repose with well-known Piebald "Leopard Boy" Ashbury. Both wear boxing gloves for their "Ash & Zip" boxing act which they featured in the Ringling Brothers & Barnum and Bailey shows in the 1890's. Zip wears a striped leather belt with his name on it on large letters. He also wears a huge medallion of George Washington pinned to his furry suit. Interestingly, the photo is also printed in reverse, noticeably in the writing on the Washington medallion and Zip's belt.
