O'Henry Fred Johnson Salem Witch Trials Sideshow Spider Girl Banner

About the Item

O'Henry Tent and Awning sideshow banner with original shipping tag. Unusual subject matter and fantastic story from the Salem witch trails to Spider Girl.

McCord was the owner of the infamous Sagebrush Cantina and amassed a collection of hundreds of some of the best examples of sideshow history.
