Your great uncle, I assume. That's pretty cool. I'd drop the coin and take that to a photograph restoration place and get it mounted up and preserved.
Very cool pic.

Thanks! That's how he earned a living. Traveled around the world putting on shows.

He was known as "Texas Zeke"



1c6534c0 1b6c 4312 8443 804439e9b95a?clientTreesUI

He's buried in Showmen's Rest Cemetery in Florida. He died at age 58 while operating a pony ride at the carnival he owned.
