From the 40s, 50s and 60s. What exactly were the 'Strange Little People'? I'd love to have seen the 'Barracuda Ape', and the 'Cyclops Pig'. Conjoined twins as freak show exhibits seems a cruel concept, although despite thinking we're all more sensitive now we can't deny a curious streak regarding 'freaks'. Reality TV programmes still feed that curiosity. TV and the tabloids are awash with modern freaks, most of whom disfigure themselves freely in the name of 'improving' their appearance courtesy of the surgeon's knife.
