Image Odyssey: Vintage Flea Circus

Posted in advertising, creatures, sideshow, vintage with tags , , , on September 3, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

My darling little kittens (who have not even left the top floor of my house yet), got fleas from a visiting family member’s outdoor cat, and it’s been impossible to get rid of them despite the most exhaustive efforts.

So we have to call in professionals today. While they work, feast your eyes on some vintage flea circus images (if ONLY these little buggers could be even mildly entertaining in this house…instead of the pestilent spawn of Hell they’ve proven to be).

Image Odyssey: Victorian Flea Circus

I have no idea why I decided to seek out “Victorian Flea Circus” images. Just a whim. I’ve had stranger ones.

Not all of these images are Victorian, obviously. I just used the search term because I wanted to find flea circuses with that special antique feel.

A little flea circus info.
