From my private collection of Magic posters, this is an original broadside advertising Professor Fontana Freier's Magic show in which the proceeds went to the Library of Garland Farmers Union that took place November 13, 1901. It measures approximately 6" x 16" and is printed on light weight cardboard which leads me to believe these may not have been posted on buildings, but rather handed out as possible flyers to passerbys.

I have researched and cannot find any information on this Magician or any images of his posters or similar broadsides. Although no information was found, this is still a great piece and may be the only surviving ad from this show. If you have any information to share on this Magician, it would be appreciated.
