While doing some baseball research I came across this ad for Diavolo as part of a larger ad for the Seventh Annual Spring Festival in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

The Chattanooga News - May 14, 1904

Doing some more research on Diavolo I found this article from the same year, 1904.

The Watertown Herald - August 13, 1904

Sideshow World has a nice page on him.  And Science Blogs has a detailed physics page on his act.

Diavolo might have been good, but he certainly wasn't The Flying Zacchinis.
