Charlie with members of The Royal Zanettos, a troupe of English jugglers, c. 1912

The Royal Zanettos toured North America with the Fred Karno troupe in 1912. Jesse Bale (the girl in the photos), is rumored to have had a little fling with Charlie.



  1. Oh, my! I think I'm the only one who didn't have a fling with Charlie, and I'm pretty sure it's because he's no longer alive. =) Thais.
