RARE original poster that advertises FORTSON’S VENTRILOQUIAL FIGURES, Circa 1910. I acquired the poster a few years back from Mr. Fortson’s granddaughter in Perry, Arkansas. There were four of these posters stored face-down in her dry closet, so the condition is amazing. I was able to purchase two and I sold one of them and now I am going to go ahead and sell mine as we are moving and scaling down. The Poster measures approximately 22″ wide x 33″ tall and was printed by The Donaldson Litho Co. of Newport, Kentucky around 1910. This poster will make a wonderful addition to anyone’s collection. William Petty Fortson was born in 1886, moved to Little Rock, Arkansas with his family in 1890 and was a Veteran Vaudeville Entertainer, Musician, Magician and Ventriloquist all of his life until his passing in 1959. Will sell without frame (cheap) and send rolled in mailing tube.
