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.
Photo of James Dawson from 1902 who is now immortalized as an “indecent exposer”. He looks just as perfectly creepy as you’d expect. And they had way more clothes on back then, it’s kind of impressive. Via heracliteanfire:
“James Dawson, arrested for Indecent Exposure. North Shields Police Station, 9th June 1902.” From a photograph album of prisoners brought before the North Shields Police Court in England between 1902 and 1916, now in the collection of the Tyne & Wear Archives and Museums.
