EDDIE MASHER......CONEY ISLAND "Skeleton Dude"
Eddie Masher was one of the skinniest men in the world. He worked in the Coney Island Freak Show in 1917-1918. He was referred to as the "Skeleton Dude" and he was one of a few known in the world. On this vintage post card it gives his weight at 38 lbs. but according which one is is the real one I found 48 lbs, 30 lbs and 67 lbs. also. So I'm not sure which one is correct but it says 38 lbs. and the height of 5 feet 7 inches !!! on this card. He died in 1962 at the age of 70 ~
