Monday Artday - "Circus"


This lovely lady is Camino Delgado, La Mujer Barbuda (or Bearded Lady,) of the Circo de William Parish in Madrid.

The Circus was real, and this is dedicated to my great friend Chichi Parish of that same family. I suspect this hirsute señorita is one of Chichi's 7 grandmothers.

Absolutely wonderful.
I must remember to bore you with the family album one of these days. My family have quite an interesting history.
