Zoe Meleke & Her Troupe Of Trained Canaries

Tradecard. Beautifully rendered illustration of Zoe on tour with Tom Thumb with 25 canary birds posed on small ladders, on a see saw, on a swing, on a spinning disk, on a rollabolla and a small cannon. Zoe is shown with non-frizzy teased hair which shows she was able to transition from Circassian to bird trainer. "WITH GEN. TOM THUMB, H.R. JACOBS, Manager." On verso, rubberstamped: "Opera House, 3ed [sic] & 4th"
