Description

From striptease midgets, human pin cushions, and monkeys in miniature race cars to trained fleas and people with double bodies, three legs, and enormous feet, this chronicle of twisted midway attractions and the showmen who have presented them covers it all. The history of the circus side show and its companion, the carnival, is celebrated in words and rare, eye-popping images, making this a must for all collectors and enthusiasts. Interviews with many of the big players on the carnival circuit are included.

Contributor Notes

A. W. Stencell, the “P. T. Barnum of Canada,” has spent a lifetime in the circus business and is vice president of the Circus Historical Society. He lives in Toronto, Ontario.
