Johnny's New Car -- March 21, 2020

New York Sun and Herald, 21-March-1920
100 years ago today, future movie comedian Harry Langdon (and Company) was performing at the Palace, the pinnacle of vaudeville in the United States.  The headliners were musical comedy stars (and husband and wife) Joseph Santley and Ivy Sawyer.  The House of David started out as a religious commune, which grew to sponsor a touring baseball team, an amusement park and this band.  They are called "The Whiskered Wonders of the West" because the men were required to grow beards and wear their hair long.  Lily Lena was a comedian from Britain.  Joe Morris and Flo Campbell had a comic skit called "The Avi-Ate-Her."
