We are working on a show for Stamford Museum in CT about puppets and are looking for moving or still images with puppets. Any and all puppets. We know there were several shows at the Fair utilized puppets.

Any and all help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.....AGAIN WE BEG!

We are looking for just "traditional" puppets - string puppets, marionettes, hand puppets and the like. Body puppets are okay too.

Any images moving or static are appreciated!

At any World's Fair?

1933 Chicago Century of Progress World's Fair - Dentistry exhibit

-I notice that "Mr. Floss" doesn't appear to be in the script - I heard that flossing wasn't pushed by the American Dental Association until after World War II-

I just found it today, and have put a bid on it.

This is where you found the totem poles, huh Curtis?

Yes. We have worked for them for years. We originally did a film on Jonas and the Sinclair Dinos when the previous director was at the Berkshire Museum. The Berkshire Museum had obtained a casting of one of the Dinos and wanted to do a show around it. We are looking for footage (moving or still) on models now for an upcoming show. Cars, airplanes, trains, etc. Is that a hint? Hmmm.....
