1904 Belle Gordon, Physical Culture for woman
Fancy Bag Puncher

George Hertz 1907 world champion bag punching manipulator
"10 bags at once"

1908 Mr. & Mrs. Milo Vagge, World Champion Bag Puncher
Vaudeville appearance

1907 Franks and Franks, lady bag punchers

1949 Lenny and Margie Ross Ed Sullivan Show Appeared in state fairs and theaters into the mid 1960's.

It just keeps on getting better.
