1. I love everything from the 1940s and older and back in those days the circus was something really amazing. I’m fascinated by the art of the circus, that’s why I also joined a circusschool a couple of years ago. It’s magical to be a part from it!

    Did you notice that in the fifth photo all the shoes would be highly on trend today? The ones on the far right look like Restrepo. I was there in September!

  3. My favorite vintage imagery is of the circus.. thank you so much for posting these beauties!! Those circus girls were tough, beautiful, glamourous, fit, strong & FUN!

  4. These are absolutely incredible. I love the one of the woman dangling upside down with a cigarette in her mouth.

  5. Such babes, imagine the stories they tell their grand kids. I did a photo series on a circus in Edinburgh a few years ago, it really is a world of its own.

  7. You really do have to be tough. I’ve done circus since I was eleven. Coaches are brutal, crowds can be too, and don’t even get me started on directors. But its all worth it when you nail a trick and the crowds cheer. Pure bliss.
