Myrtie with Her
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.
