Hugo Schmitt introduced the first one foot stand in America that was presented in the act be brought from Europe in 1948.
With my latest discovery we see the first one trained in this country and depending on who you ask, it was trained either by Joe Frisco or John Cuneo.
I'm glad this picture turned up since I recalled that she balanced on the left foot.
I once asked John about this and he couldn't remember.
Consequently I began to think that maybe the picture had been flopped but now after being enlarged, the sign in the background proves otherwise.
