Que extra├▒o, son buenas las fotos, pero es raro ver este tipo de cosas.

Nice. Just FYI, the understudy to Chas. Eisenmann was Frank Wendt, who I have been collecting and documenting. Eisenmann turned over the sideshow photo studio, Wendt ran it on the Bowery a few years before moving it to Boonton, New Jersey around 1890. More info and pics a plenty on Wondrous World of Wendt site. (http://frankwendt.blogspot.com)

I hate it when I let an auction get away for too little. That framed piece is going to bother me for a long time. It will be hard to forget.

Yeah, that's the story of my life! I like to look at it like baseball....I win about 3 out of every 10 auctions I bid on. So, batting .300 isn't too bad!
