Comic Costume Scramble

PAU 1897-03

Comic Costume Race.

MANY favourite performer, are seen in this picture, each bearing a cunspicuous number on his breast. A row of baskets containing grotesque costumes are similarly numbered. The competitors race from a distance, find the basket allotted to them, make their toilet as rapidly as possible and race back to the starting point. Very funny and a popular subject.
