Beverly Hills skell

If you are going to be homeless, why not sift through rich peoples' garbage? If this guy had turned sideways, he wouldn't have shown up in the photo.

Crossdressing Sideshow

This oddity is a common sight in downtown Portland. He dresses like any other derelict that might be seen in the city - except for the large skirt that he sports with pride.

Bird Woman Sideshow

So first there was the bird guy on the motorcycle, then on an opposite side of the country, this oddity who took her bird out for a car ride. Note that this was collected from a moving vehicle - a technique best employed by only the most experienced collectors!

Key West sideshow

Check out these wonderful examples collected in Key West.

Note the careful hair style, ubiquitous cigarette, and the use of gold in accessorizing. Classic sideshow.

Look close and you can see the parrot riding on his head. Also note how this skilled rider feels that footwear is superfluous.

Hollywood Sideshow

What a catch. Note the masses of matted hair, the gaunt body, and the total sideshow transportation.

Napping sideshow

Just catching some z's on the local bus bench...

A Hollywood Collection...

Check out these fine additions by this collector. He was not content to simply grab them passively, but chose to involve himself directly with them for a true sideshow experience. Well done...
