Reach Striking Bags-profession and theatrical bags

Here is a interesting find...

Searching a little speed bag history the other day and found this in a 1908 newspaper...

Reach Striking Bags "for professional and theatrical bag punchers"

(...just for Dutchman)

http://www.workshopoftheworld.com/fishtown/reach.html

This was in the same paper as the 1908 Vaudeville appearance of Milo Vagge announcement below.

5 cents admission to the the "world champion" bag punchers. Wonder what that would cost now....

(would this be a nice time travel trip...)
