★BEARDED LADY

BEARDED LADY, or for delicacy reasons called 'Lady with MUSTACHE', was 'photographed' after her most successful sideshow performance where she presented the new trick called 'jumping mustache'...

Dark candy illustration... lovely lady in stripped stockings, light as butterfly & very disturbingly beautiful..

 

★FACTS

BEARDED & MUSTACHED LADIES are the performing stars of the 19Th and early 20Th centuries. They are a phenomenon of legend, curiosity, ridicule, and even a fashion statement.

One of the famous ones was Annie Jones, born in Virginia. She toured with showman P. T. Barnum as a circus attraction.
