1926 Double weight photograph of Babe Ruth as he was having make-up applied to his face for a Vaudeville tour by famous silent film actress Gloria Swanson. He was joined in the photo (and on the tour) by tennis star Bill Tilden as well. A really cool image in great shape, this is the only image from this tour we have ever seen and it presents well with note to a few small rips on the lower right.
