Very rare photo of the Great Layton, an African American wire balancing performer in the late 1800s and early 1900s, shown here doing his act, with his advertising banner visible on the left. Possible signature on the back. This is the only cabinet photo I have ever seen for sale of this performer. I've included a scan of an article I found online; it's for reference only, and the original article is not included. Photo is approximately 4.5" x 3.5" and is in very good condition.
