Ward Hall

Carnival Games, Girlie Shows Part 3

This is the last of three videos about Ward Hall and his first carnival sideshow experiences in the late 1940s.  The dean of the American sideshow  wistfully shares his memories of the 'flat store' games and girlie shows - especially the strippers' deceptive ornaments - that populated carnival midways of the mid-20th Century in the blowoff of Lane Talburt's three-part series.

 

This is vintage Ward Hall:
