Description
c 1890 HISPANIC CIRCUS FREAK SIDESHOW MIDGET CHIQUITA, COMPOSITE w 9 VIEWS, MD

Description:
Circa 1890s Occupational Cabinet Card Photograph of Circus Sideshow Midget Performer named "Chiquita". (An uncommon image of which this is only the second one I've encountered in 25 years.) Interesting composite photograph with nine different images of the famous performer in various costumes. Photograph is by Selby of Baltimore, Maryland. A brief online research reveals that this tiny performer was of Cuban or Mexican descent. She was a feature attraction in the Bostock-Ferari Carnival during the 1901 Pan American Exposition in Buffalo, N.Y. Light period pencil writing on the reverse appears to read; "Chiquita". Approximate mount board size is 4-1/4" x 6-1/2". Condition: light surface soiling. occasional dings, scuffs, and edge bumps. cellophane tape on mount at bottom and tape residue on image at top. small 3/8" area of image loss on surface of photo at top near tape residue.
