Lady Carlotta in New York City

Mary “Carlotta” Myers and her husband Carl gave so many balloon demonstrations that they could operate like a well-oiled machine. They would arrive at a venue around noon, set up their equipment, produce the hydrogen and inflate the balloon, manage Carlotta’s ascent, flight and descent, and pack everything away, leaving the grounds clear for an evening’s band concert.
