While there is a phantom arm reaching down onto the player to his right.  If you study the photo closely you will see that the arm doesn't really belong to any of the players.  Edit:  Guess it's the guy behind him.  Anyway, the shoulder looks all wrong.

Nice read.  Carlton also survived a tumble down some stairs.  From the Wiki article:

Catching up on this wonderful thread..

You think you know stuff .. Reading this thread always find out how little I really know.

Ordered Carlton's autobiography.. He was a real man's man!

1) I like the goofy-looking, jug-eared guy top row, 3rd from the left.

2) The guy on the second row, 2nd from the left looks like a young Barry Switzer! Google, Bing, or whatever image search and you'll see what I mean if you don't see the resemblance.

3) Notice the "ghost" apparition in the background. A vendor or usher, I guess a black guy, and so the b&w photo with dark background makes it look like a ghostly jacket and hat are mysterious floating in the aisle. Or maybe it is a ghost of a cigar vendor who tripped on the stairs, hit his head, and died and now is doomed to roam the aisles.

You could've hoist a few with him at one of "Happy" Felsch's taverns. (He, I think, is the Barry Switzer look alike it that photo and was banned in the up-coming "Black Sox" betting scandal. He went to playing in very minor leagues and exhibitions but then opened a grocery store, and some drinking establishments and succumbed to liver problems in 1964 in Milwaukee.

It must be years of listening to RCH trying to convince Art, and other hosts, and listeners about how to identify crystalline structures, usually domes, and other arcologies in blurry photographs of planets and satellites.  ;)

The SM UC-42, a minelaying U-boat, met its fate on September 10, 1917.  Apparently it struck one of its own mines.

The Gulf Between (1917 film) was the first movie to be made with Technicolor.  It was first viewed at a private trade showing in Boston on September 13, 1917 and was released to theatres on February 25, 1918.  It is now lost, with only a few short segments surviving.

Info: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Gulf_Between_(1917_film)  (Click on the part that says 'Did you mean: The Gulf Between (1917 film)?' to get to the article.)


This is one of the few surviving film fragments from The Gulf Between (1917), the first Technicolor movie and the only one made to be publicly shown by the additive two-color method.

Ha, yes it does.  Speaking of food, there were lots of food related cartoons back then, like this rather weird one from the

I had to study that pic for a bit.  Then I noticed the legs.  I had no idea what the lady was hugging.  I thought "that's the weirdest loaf of bread I've seen.'   ;)
