One of several trunks belonging to Johnny Eck . This one was used to transport many of his smaller props from one town to the next. Red podium also traveled with he and Rob. Used for both practical purposes as well as performing. (See a picture of Rob using it in the Sideshow section on the Photographs page.)
Shirt/ swimsuit above was made by Johnnys' sister Carolyn.
Johnny's collapsable (Opera) top hat, crystal ball and vintage photo of him with both.
Probably one of the most recognized stage props used by Johnny throughout his career. Earliest know photos show Johnny on this stool in the late teens. early 20's. In later years he added a nameplate on the underside of the seat.
