Disturbing Ephemera: Wizard of Oz Cast Photo, Circa Early 1900s

OK, so maybe it’s not all that creepy. But it’s odd enough to make you do a double-take I think. Here’s a publicity photo of some of the cast from The Wizard of Oz. No, not the Judy Garland movie we all love so much, but a stage production from the early 1900s put on by a group called Jack Singer’s Passing Review. The photographer was listed as a Porter of Connellsville, PA on the auction page.

Actually now that I think about it, the truly bizarre aspect of this picture is not the Scarecrow or the Tin Woodman, but Dorothy. She looks to be, what, about 35 here?
