    Those reflections on the glass make her look like Capt. Jack Sparrow.

    All I gotten while looking her up is:

    Esmerelda the fortuneteller welcomes visitors to this carnival of flashing lights, music and sound.

    You’ve probably walked by Esmeralda, the fortune teller in the Penny Arcade – but did you know she has been there since opening day?

    I love Esmerelda!
    I pledge allegiance to the Earth, one planet, many gods, and to the universe in which she spins.

    Re: Esmerelda on Main St?

    I noticed a couple weeks ago, toward the back of the arcade,
    there is ANOTHER fortune teller! I never noticed this 2nd
    fortune teller on Main Street. Does anyone know how long
    she's been there? Where she's from?????

    Re: Esmerelda on Main St?

    In the early 1900s there was a huge scandal surrounding fortune teller Esmerelda von Crochet.

    She was a popular circus sideshow act, predicting things about visitors by using ordinary playing cards. Often she was passed off as a novelty... entertainment but there was neither a shortage of believers who were astounded by her predictions.

    In 1908 during a visit to Missouri she was asked to perform for various politicians of the state and city she was visiting.

    She generally made predictions that were very broad and vague... that might apply to anybody. Not knowing the mayor was a married man and finding him quite attractive, she went on and on about a beautiful woman he was going to be very involved with and would form a deep relationship with and ultimately marry. She was actually referring to herself.

    Knowing that the mayor was a married man it not only angered everybody around, particularly in those days, but his wife found out and left him and he lost he job as well.

    Out of embarassment and fear Esmerelda went into hiding and was never seen again by the state of Missouri or the circus.

    Victor Hugo's "Esmerelda" from Notre-Dame du Paris is the most famous gypsy in literary history, so I always assumed her name is an allusion to the novel.

    Ditto. And most of the time, the card tells me "beware of a gray-haired man," or something to that effect.
