Bob Blackmar is to be commended for his modest, yet outstanding ongoing contributions to the history of our art form.

He's been putting out "Sideshow Newsletter" for a number of years now, and it's a delightful read. While most of his material deals with historical shows and performers, some current news slips in. He finds some great old pictures and playbills.

For those who don't know him, Bob's been with it, for a looong time, and is a wealth of good information and great jackpots.

Yeah I've actually wondered that for some time as well, is there an actual print version? I just thought it was online on SS World

Harley, do you think he may have a photo of Rasmus Nielsen displaying his front and back full body tattoo? I had this photo until someone swiped it to use for flash.... grumble grumble.

There is a print version, I've been getting it for years, not sure how I started getting it. I think I e-mailed Bob, or called him.

You can find on-line versions of it on sideshowworld.com . If you want the print version, send Bob some cash for your subscription.

I wouldn't doubt it.

I think I know some guy that I work for has it also.

Todd, I have pretty much EVERYTHING Rasmus put out. I even have an original autographed pitchcard given to me from an estate auction. The photo I had stolen from me is very specific. It is a side-by-side print of him with his hands at his sides, black and white. He is not doing a lift. One shot is a front view, the other his back.

I have a rare photo of the back of his head. His earrings are so large and thick that they lay on his shoulders. There's no photo record of it, but it was rumored that he would hang sledgehammers from them.
