The Paldrens! "Sensational jumping, balancing and pyramiding on burning lamps. Their first appearance in America." Why the Paldrens took to balancing themselves on and between lamps, especially when suspended from propeller planes, is beyond us. Apparently they were still performing in 1921, according to a California paper, but they had gained two men and apparently lost several women from their act. Small cameos of Barnum & Bailey occupy the upper left corner.
