This 1906 photo is of Professor Samuel H. Lingerman's "Palace Of Amusements" located at the White City Amusement Park in Binghamton, New York. Prof. Lingerman was a noted 19th century ventriloquist who traveled with various carnivals and amusement parks into the 20th century with his Magician wife, Lucy Lingerman.


He is shown here standing at the podium with one of the five characters which he used in his act.


White City Park, adapted from the model White City Park shown at the Columbian Exposition of 1893, was an Amusement Park from 1902-1910.
