Globe of Death with sidecar

Souvenir postcard from a 'Globe of Death' stunt show. Looks like it is from the thirties. Using a sidecar in the globe is something a bit different and I can't find reference to it elsewhere, a French and German team seems like less of a unique selling point these days though. The Globe of Death shows used to be more common, I saw one once a few years ago at a bike show in London's Docklands. The Globe is spectacular but loses out to the Wall of Death in the fact that it is hard to hide from punters. It's quite easy to line folks up and sell them a ticket in to the Wall show, but try hiding the Globe of Death!

Globe of Death.
