One thought on “Step Right This Way: The Photographs of Edward J. Kelty

  1. Cee

    I love this book My interest in this book is my fascination with the old freakshows, of which there are plenty of great photos, but all of the photos in this book are quite phenomenal It really gives you an idea of what a mass production the old circus must have been significantly larger than the old Shriner s circus that rolled through my town anyway The costumes are incredible and the photos of the clowns are the stuff nightmares are made of I particularly enjoyed the witty and gritty preface [...]

    This is a really phenomenal book As expected, there were a lot of interesting, amazing for their time photos by E.J Kelty but there was so much history included as well For example, there aren t a lot of Circus photos left because most circuses had a photographer who traveled with them but those photos were primarily used for ads so they were tossed when the Circus passed through Kelty had to pay the Circus Master Owner 50% of his sales to have access to everyone from the cools to stars.
