Myrtie with Her Snakes

 

Two photos of Myrtie with her snakes.   The only information I have is that she performed in a theatre in Boston with another snake enchantress.  The story goes that one of  Myrtie's pythons nearly strangled the other lady to death one night.  

 

 

 


 

The necklace she is wearing in the second photo may be something she  picked up in her travels - there are several photos of Native  Americans which she may have met and perhaps performed with.

 

 


 

This photo is circa 1908 it one from Myrtie's collection, it's of Admiral Don  O. Robbins who was born in Belfast, Maine.  At the time he was billed as the smallest man in the country.
