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.

“Ella Harper Age 13. Born in Hendersonville, Tenn. I am called the Camel Girl because as you see that my knees turn backwards. I can walk the best on my hands & feet as you see me in this picture. I have traveled considerably in the Show business for the last 4 years. And now as this is 1886, I now intend to quit the Show business and go to school and fit my self for some other occupation.”
