HUMAN ODDITIES OF THE CIRCUS SIDESHOW

of Yesterday and Today

 

907 Of the Wonders that Mother Nature has Craved Out on the Human Body

 

Bernard Lyle Kobel was born in 1906. He published 10 catalogs in which he offered for sale reprints of photographs. The catalogs contain descriptive text only. This is an index to his Human Oddities catalog which was published or re-published in 1966. Mr. Kobel died in 1985. I'm in hopes to give examples of the Kobel Collection by linking the numbers and names of the people to a photograph in the collection.
