Ventriloquists Pictures from Down Under


Once again our friend from Australia, Colin Williams, sent in a couple of nice photos.

Hi Dan,
I thought I would send these photos on. You have probably seen the one of Edgar Bergen.


The other photo is Australian ventriloquist Ron Blaskett, which shows his two beautiful Marshall figures.


The goofy figure was carved by an Australian dentist!!! It was the only ventriloquist figure he ever made and was carved before Mortimer, in the late 1930s.

Thanks again for everything Dan.
Best wishes,

Thanks Colin for sharing these nice pictures.
