  1. French family of vaudeville performers Palmers: brothers Gaston and Justin and their sister Olive

Olive Palmer wrote 29 November 1904: “The next week Empire, Bristol”

Justin Palmer sent his postcard from Bristol in week after Olive’s postcard – 6 Dec 1904

Other postcards from Justin Palmer

Gaston Palmer

Although there is no surname of Gaston on this postcard, I supposed, that this postcard was written by Gaston Palmer, the famous French juggler, because I found a mention about Gaston Palmer in internet while searching Justin and Olive Palmer. After that I found a French juggler Olivier Caignart in facebook, who was interested in history of juggling, and he supported my thoughts with facts, which are below.

This photo of Gaston Palmer with his autograph and his family tree were sent by Olivier Caignart.

Also Olivier sent me the translation of the article about Gaston Palmer from French, which is in another file.

We can see from this family tree that Gaston, Justin and Olive Palmers were siblings!
