Title: Boat Docks at Giant's Fish Camp: Al Tomaini and Caspar Balsam.
Name(s): Tomaini,
Balsam,
Type of Resource: still image
Summary: Pictured are giant, Al Tomaini and midget, Colonel Casper Balsam on boats at Giants Camp, just south of the Alafia River Bridge (pictured in the background.) Tomaini, billed as being over 8 feet tall, was one of the first side show people to live in Gibsonton and opened the popular Giant's Fish Camp. Balsam, who once played a Munchkin on The Wizard of Oz, was billed as being slightly over 3 feet tall. The reverse of this undated photograph, indicates that Colonel Casper also served as a deputy police chief for the town, although that should be confirmed.
