This old publicity still features early 20th century Vaudeville star Charles Kellogg singing to a snake. Kellogg was a California native, born in 1868, and he said he learned to sing to birds from indigenous local friends. Once the most popular act on the the Vaudeville circuit, in later years Kellogg was a keen conservationist and noted eccentric. He traveled around in what may have been the first RV: the “Travel Log” constructed from a redwood log over a Nash Quad chassis. More on Kellogg here.
