The last two items in this collection are a pair of photographs of Joseph Vera. The first photograph shows Vera sitting with a small dog in his lap and a young boy, presumably his son or grandson, sitting next to him. This photograph measures 4" x 2 1/2" and is mounted on a board. The second photograph appears to be a duplicate of the first, however it has been cropped and enlarged to just show Vera and the dog.

A collection of 5" x 7" promotional prints from 1950s of circus freaks. There are a total of 42 prints in this collection of individuals with a variety of deformations and talents. The majority of the figures in the photographs have been identified. If the name of the performer is not on the photograph itself, it is on the back of card, sometimes with additional biographical information on the individual, such as the act or circus they performed with. While the prints are all from the 1950s, they are often reproductions of early photographs, some dating from the 1860s.  Some of the photographs depict a variety of dwarves, deformities such as missing limbs or other physical deformities such as "Pin Heads", wild men, strong men, conjoined twins, and giants. . The prints are curled, but otherwise in great shape. As these are reproductions there are some slight quality issues, but that is mainly due to the condition of the original itself.
