A past contributor to Ventriloquist Central, Bill Smith sent in this great old ventriloquist ad from 1902.

Here’s his email:

Hi Dan.

Just thought you might like to see this. I’d love to see one of these. This comes from Ellis Stanyon’s magic mag, 3/1902 he was a seller of these along with his magic items.


Thanks, Bill for sending this ad in and sharing with everyone.
