Description

A journey back to the glory years of traveling adult entertainment, this book chronicles the carnivals, the scams, and, of course, the women (and men) who performed in girl shows. Featuring 200 photos to help illustrate this cultural phenomenon, the book details girl shows' European origins, their American developments, their heyday after World War II, and their ultimate demise in the face of men's magazines, strip clubs, and X-rated videos.

Contributor Notes

A. W. Stencell owned and operated his own circus for 19 years.
