In Memoriam — Johnny Fox | Sword Swallower (1953 — 2017)

Johnny Fox

We were saddened to read an obituary in the New York Times this week about sword swallower Johnny Fox, who died of cancer in Maryland at the age of 64. We snapped this picture of Fox, about to swallow a stack of swords, in the 1970s at the Fourth Avenue Street Fair in Tucson.
