Native American D'Jelmako, Le Roi des Tireurs Aeriens, 1908

A souvenir portrait of the famous high wire shooter  D' Jelmako 1908.  Thought to be half  Native American and half French, D'Jelmako  was well known for his daring acts, and appeared on posters of the time as Le Blondin - Le Roi des Tireurs Aeriens.

  1. Thank you for posting this. I have a French postcard calling him Djei Mako. With your information I'll be able to find out a lot more about him!
