You don't see this anymore.

Here is an ad for a classic thrill act of the day. I wonder how many people it took to assemble this rigging? You couldn't find enough people that could work on this safely now with all the OSHA requirements in place today. The artwork is just fantastic. Another credit to the great artists of the times that were employed in the printing houses of Letterhead and Litho companies. This ad was in Billboard on May 9, 1908 on page 31.
