For North America and the United States in particular, circus art was one of the leading mass entertainment in the XIX-XX centuries. After the Second World War a few decades circuses were successful.
But, then, in time, this kind of art was on the decline. However, in North America traveled several dozen circuses, who collected an impressive audience through live shows, animals, and amusement parks. Each had its own circus star that was, at least, the only one on the continent, and even in the world. Of course, any uniqueness can be refuted. But why? In the postwar period circus has started to revive. Survive but eventually could only the largest. We offer you several portraits of girls from different circuses, working in the middle of the last century.
