    “In the 1860s P. T. Barnum exhibited women as Circassian beauties. They wore a distinctive hair style, which had no precedent in earlier portrayals of Circassians, but was soon copied by other performers, known as “moss haired girls”. “These were typically presented Turkish sexual slaves who had escaped the harem for freedom in America. “Their distinctive hairstyle were held in place by the use of beer.”

The luxury of lace and pearls combined with the allure of ostrich feathers, vintage cases aboard the platform of the East Lancashire Old Railway were the perfect combination for the perfect pictures that were created that rainy day! Some of the images went on to grace novel covers pertaining to that beautiful vintage era of the 1920s.

In 1876 he set out with writer Adolphe Smith and together the pair spoke to people and the shots were later published in magazine, Street Life in London.
