Kelty, Edward (American, 1888—1967). Congress of Freaks with Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus. New York: Century Photo, [1929]. Sepia-tone gelatin print depicts one of Kelty’s most famous scenes: the R.B.B.B. sideshow performers, including Eko and Iko, three giants, a snake charmer, sword swallower (in mid-swallow) and over a dozen more. 12 x 20”. Two Century stamps to verso. Scattered soiling, scuffs, and pinholes at corners. An airbrushed version of this photo issued by Kelty is known, but this version, in which the performers pose slightly differently than others, is apparently scarcer.
