Of the many midgets that we have seen and known, undoubtedly Tom Thumb and his charming wife Mr. Charles Stratten, will be best remembered because of their having been widely exploited in tours around the world under the direction of the renowned Barnum and the management of Silvester Bleeker, who traveled with them in all their long journeys. Thumb, as a widow, married Count Rosebud, one of the midget brothers Margi, and is now living and enjoying good health at an age like all other ladies made known at her own sweet will only. Minnie Warren, a sister of Mrs. Thumb, and if anything, more diminutive, was married to Commodore Nut, and together these four little people appeared in nearly every country on the face of the globe. The Brothers Margi, previously known as “Count Rosebud” and “Baron Little Finger, ” were two of, the best-formed and well-informed little men one would ever expect to meet. They traveled with me in this and foreign countries, and they were always found very companionable and interesting. Both of them were accomplished musicians in voice and instrumental execution. The “baron” had for a wife a lady much larger than himself, who bore him two or three children, and “Count Rosebud, ” as I have stated, married Mrs. “Thumb, ” and together this trio are now giving most interesting entertainments. Cooke, Newark Evening Star, Newark, New Jersey, December 9, 1915, n. This is a series of articles Cooke wrote from 1915 to 1916.

This is described as “The Pony Mathematician” (10780). Comparing old photos, it’s not Hans Clever, but this image is from around the same time. Maybe it’s at the Chicago’s World’s Fair? Nevertheless, it’s very rare and obviously cool. Benjamin is well known for his photojournalism, stereoview publishing company, the invention of a photo gun camera, as well as search and rescue work on Mount Washington. This is a stereoview (also known as a stereograph or stereoscope card). It is one of the first forms of 3D photography. The images were captured with a special stereoscopic camera, which has two lenses – simulating the view of our left and right eyes. The two, nearly identical pictures are then mounted next to each other (most commonly on a piece of cardstock, glued on as photographs or printed as lithographs). The image can then be seen in three dimensions when viewed through a device known as a stereoscope, stereopticon, and/or televiewer. Standard-size stereograph, measuring about 3.5 x 7 inches. All of my paper items are protected in archival-safe polypropylene sleeves and packaged in rig. This item is in the category “Collectibles\Photographic Images\Stereoviews & Stereoscopes”.

We also Feature Many Other Fascinating Collectibles from Throughout the World! We Treat You Like Royalty!! KEEP CHECKING OUR CLASSICLITERATI AUCTIONS! Here we have a classic image of world famous performer Tom Thumb (a very active Freemason, also Scottish Rite & Knight Templar) alongside his wife, Lavinia Warren. This authentic 19th century Cabinet Card photo was taken by the great Abraham Bogardus in New York City. Although it may be a bit hard to tell from the photo, but Tom Thumb is proudly wearing the Scottish Rite Watch Fob that he loved so much. A circus sideshow icon, Tom Thumb has been refered to as both a Midget and a Dwarf. Some describe him as having been really tiny. But others claim this to be pure “baloney”, insisting he was really much taller then his promoted heights. In any case, there is no doubt that this man is a legend. One of the most popular performers of all time. This is a really handsome old period photograph of Tom Thumb and his wife, the equally famous Lavinia Warren. Aside from being somewhat light, the photo is in very good vintage condition. One must remember that being well over 100 years old, natural ageing is normal in old photographs. Yet, the image is all there and the item is solid and attractive. Charles Sherwood Stratton (Tom Thumb) was a high ranking Mason and his wife Warren was active in the Eastern star for a great many years. Tom here is older and much heavier in this picture. It is a fact that quite a few Circus and Sideshow personalities were active Freemasons. The list includes among many others: all the Ringling Brothers, the “World’s Tallest Man” Robert Wadlow, Giants Jim Tarver and John (Johan) Aasen as well as many of the then-called “Midgets”. Please also note the photo appearing at the very top of the page which shows a Giant Masonic Shriner from many years ago. Other Masonic Circus luminaries include all the Ringling Brothers, Lion Tamer Clyde Beatty and Clown Emmett Kelly both Sr. Many of them were also Knight Templars (Tarver, Thumb, etc). The photo measures approximately 4 ¼ x 6 ½ inches. Tom Thumb and Lavinia Warren belonged to that unique group of Sideshow Royalty. They are great legends along with the likes of Celebrated Freaks Jo-Jo the Russian Dog Faced Man, Lionel the Lion Faced Boy, Zip the “What-Is-It” Pinhead, Bearded Lady Annie Jones and Armless Wonder Charles Tripp. THIS IS A GENUINE 19th CENTURY PERIOD ORIGINAL PHOTOGRAPH! We regularly feature extremely attractive and also very rare, top quality antiques including among the finest in Fraternal and Masonic Swords and Historic Relics as well as many other fascinating items. Among our clients are Museums and Archives as well as many collectors the world over. Please keep checking our Classicliterati auctions. We try to describe items to the best of our ability.
