    The Rutland State Fair girlie show lasted into the early 80's before it was shut down. It became extremely raunchy towards the end of its run (even I was shocked!)

    Great image,Depth and expression of the human condition travling with a Carni in the 40's
    was a harsh life.The detail in these images brings to life so well those days of doubt
    and mystery.Very powerful.

    She is practicing for a few audience on a daily basis.
    Little did she know when this photograph taken more than half a century ago that it would be seen world wide at a click of a mouse.
