Tightrope Walker

Tightrope ladyM’lle Carolista the Tightrope Walker. 1861


“On Thursday next M’lle Carolista is to take a tight rope walk in this city. The rope is to be stretched from the New York Store to Graham’s Drug Store over which she will pass,stopping by the way for the purpose of balancing, posing, etc. This daring feat will no doubt call a large concourse of people to the city.”
