Charlie Holland's celebration of the astounding speciality acts of the Variety and Vaudeville stages.
Please visit www.themarvellouscraggs.co.uk
Discover the Marvellous Craggs, the Yiulians/Yulians/Julians Acrobats, the Hanlon Brothers, some jugglers, and other Strange Feats and Clever Turns!
This is a work in progress, but includes the raw information I have on various acts I am interested in finding out more about.
I have been inspired by two clips of film I have originally labelled The Julians Acrobats, but more accurately the Yiulians Family, apparently dated 1902/03, which I have put on YouTube
I hope that, one day, a film made in 1901 of the Marvellous Craggs may be discovered.
I am always interested in finding out more about these and similar acts
