Thanks to his moustache, and because he was the tallest of the Bale brothers, George is easy to recognise in many photos.
In some later close-ups, it looks as if he may have had "lucky teeth", with a slight gap between the top front two. If so, it may have helped to hold the fork on which he caught turnips.
However, it may also be the result of having lost a tooth due to the impact, which some reported as being enough to knock him over!
In 1891, George married "the Beautiful Jessica" (see page "Jessica Prosser). She was a well-known slack-wire artiste and even topped the bill one year when appearing with The Royal Zanettos ...
In 1897, their divorce case was reported in the entertainment press ....
but also in The Times ...
(See page "Sandow" for more about this admirer of Jessica mentioned by George during the court case.)
And here we have the co-respondent
