(chuckle), this is awesome. I was first tipped to the "Circassian Beauties"over yonder by Benhästen, and then there is this:

Wow. I guess big hair was the thing back then.

I didn't know dear Benhästen had covered this. I am a recent follower.

I might have to snag some of these Sideshow beauties.

Hi there both :)
I LOVE this book.

I spent so long with it in a book store a few weeks ago that the (very kind) staff said "if he was up for adoption, we would let you have him for free".

I love the images and the book has great presentation.

I'm looking for a copy to adopt.

Oh, I'm so glad you like this particular pic. I really stroke me when I first read the book.

Thank you so much for the link to my blog :)

Hi kReEsTaL!

Thanks for dropping in and thanks for posting. That photo rocks.

I'll look forward to more.

The pleasure is mine, you're welcome.
