This tintype photograph (June 1993) by Claude Levet shows Dr. Bumstead in a moment of repose, with one of the banjos that he made and bottles of his first medicine show product, Lenape Liquid. Mark Osterman writes:

"The tintypes of me and my wife were made at a fair. Claude Levet, the tintypist, was set up across from our stage and made them without charge...it was a very hot and slow day. We had gotten married just the week before. You can see the Galvanic Battery that we used for the ballyhoo resting under the table."
