Trocadero Vaudevilles,

Circa 1896 photo of the Trocadero Vaudevilles, from Sobel, Bernard. A Pictorial History of Vaudeville. New York: The Citadel Press, 1961: 50.

From the caption:
"Sandow, the Strong Man, upholds his title on a typical vaudeville bill which includes Billy B. Van, musical comedy star; The Great American Amann, protean artist; Mon. O'Gust, French clown, making his American debut; and The Five Jordans, whose aerial act required a short delay so that the placing of a large net would preclude any accident befalling that graceful, daring performance" (Sobel 51).
