Freak show Pictures From The 1800’s
For some time traveling circuses were a way for some to live. Especially those who were seen as “different” or abnormal. Those with strange behaviors or things others didn’t see as normal had a place to go. They had an escape as well as a way to showcase their talents on a nationwide level. They also had a steady job and income, something they couldn’t find in the regular world. What we think is different now is still strange to us as we look back into the past. But imagine the ridicule and eyes these people saw on them on a regular basis.
Traveling circuses and freakshows were something out of a comic book. They weren’t supposed to be like anything you’ve ever seen before. Some of the performers were deformed and found ways to perform and captivate crowds. Freak shows were those little pop-up shows with the dusty road crews. The kind of people you wouldn’t want to mess with. They would leave as fast as they came, and no one really knew where they were going next. Along the way, many caught glimpses into the world of the “freakshow.” In the video below you’ll see into that world and wonder that was part of the freakshow.
