Sie Hassan Ben ALi & His Acrobatic Troupe 1912
this troupe of acrobats came to the US in 1912 and the man in middle appears to be Sie Hassan Ben ALi. this was a scan that I made years ago of a photo postcard I had of this group and a man bought it, kept it for over a year and then returned it for a full refund.. I don't know where it is now in this house but I have it somewhere. I came across the scan while looking for another. I couldn't resist the costumes are way too cool! The blurb below is from 1912 nyt. He apparently died 2 yrs after this photo was taken.
- I am a mother of 2 wonderful girls, grandmother of 4, don't worry you will see photos of them one day! I live in Sedona Arizona, a beautiful place, lots of sun and blue blue skies! I listen to politics and my favorite radio channel is Cinemix. I am the oldest of 11 , I love my kids, my parents and my siblings and my friends!!
