Crossing Times Square By Her Teeth

Ever wonder what an urban publicity stunt looked like in 1932? Well, here you go.

Gothamist explains:

The performer is Tiny Kline (who lived from 1891 to 1964), and during her time she was a Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus performer, where this type of signature “slide for life/iron jaw” stunt captivated many. Later in life, at the age of 70, the talented acrobat played Tinker Bell in the “Fantasy in the Sky” fireworks show at Disneyland.
