Mac Norton - The Human Aquarium



Mac Norton poster 1913


Sideshow regurgitator Claude Louis Delair (1876-1953) was a Frenchman with a strong interest in Scottish history who took his stage name from the bodyguard of Mary Queen of Scots.

From 1900, renamed as Mac Norton and calling himself 'The Human Aquarium', his vaudeville sideshow acts consisted of swallowing large quantities of water, bread, beer, frogs & goldfish.
He performed his routines in circuses and music halls all across Europe and many other countries including the USA, South America & North Africa, keeping his act alive until he was 70 years old.

He sometimes appeared on the same bill as such luminaries as Houdini - who said he had seen many other frog swallowers but 'Norton was the only one I ever saw who presented his act in a dignified manner'

  Chateau d'Oex,
Switzerland

British tourists were the first to travel to Chateau d'Oex, Switzerland, around the middle of the 1800s. The village became a popular holiday destination of the Belle Epoque once it could be reached by train in 1904. Grand hotels were built to establish it's reputation as a major winter sports resort.
This colorful 1930s poster conveys the natural beauty of the region.
