This "Pony-Boy" is known from a photo of his banner by Earle Caldwell, and is billed as "The World's Great Quadrumanous Entertainer," and possibly by a photo of him with a sideshow cast from circa 1930 (see below) where the banner calls him "Prince Eco Half." A 1925 Pathe short film is described in "The Exhibitor's Trade Review": "Walks on hands on edge of 15-story building-- Prince Ma-Ho of the Folding Legs is right at home wrong side up! ....Standing on his thumbs, with the whole weight of his body in perfect balance...." Not much else is known about Prince-Ma-Ho.
