This blog by mikl-em (I played Sugarchurch) features Stuff about carnival sideshows, the 1800's to 1930’s, Vaudeville, clowns, freaks, silent film, or whatever else seems to fit.
“Glaciers en Suisse” (1910) by photographer Henri Chouanard (1883-1936). They used to look like that. Here’s a comparison of Swiss glaciers in 1850 to 2002.
