Best 1930s Craze
1930s, Automobiles, Lions, Motorcycles, Wall of Death
Taking lions for Wall of Death rides in sidecars.
I think this is Marjorie Kemp with Sultan at Revere, Massachusetts. The motorcycle is probably an Indian Scout. The lion seems to be enjoying it.
Apparently all sorts of people, British and Americans used to do it. People named “Fearless Egbert” and “Tornado Smith.”
Hat tip to Karen L. Myers.
