For your consideration is this antique cabinet card of celebrity brothers Waino and Plutano the Wild Men of Borneo, circa 1880. They toured with Barnum and Bailey and this is an original photograph that would have been sold at the shows as souvenirs for tourists. It has information about the brothers ages on the back and the original price of 10 cents. If you look at the closeup of Plutano, you can see he is giving you a wink.
This one is photographed by the highly sought after circus photographer; Frank Wendt. It is in Very Fine antique condition. Wear and darkening to paper commensurate with age.
