Charlie Chaplin. Serious Badass.
Born on April 16, 1889.
Recently I saw a print of this photo up close a couple of times in a small early b/w photography exhibit at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC. Charlie is performing while standing on Douglas Fairbank's shoulders so the immense crowd at a 1918 WW I War Bonds rally on Wall Street can see him. Simply amazing.
