    It's quite possible that they considered her a "show person", like a vaudvillian or a carnival show performer. Both were looked down upon during that era.

    Someone could make this type swivel again today very easily. This swivel would be ideal for big bags on your big Spalding platform. Or as a floor mount. If I ever find another one of these swivels, I'll shoot you a PM Joe. You need one.
    That is so cool... please let me know if you ever see another one! I'm half tempted to try to make them again....?????

    ...and thanks for the pictures!

    Maybe she read those cool old booklets we've tracked down. Or she snuck down to Australia.

    What's amazing to me is the set up itself, the overhead board, the metal framing and track board for the feet, complete with a floor swivel and high heel (?) board. (guess woman didn't wear tennis shoes back then....)
