Schlitzie - Simon Metz

 

These people were an extremely popular attraction with showmen,
because of their unusual and primitive appearance.


They were promoted as "Darwin's missing link" or the surviving children of a lost civilization

(i.e. The Ancient Aztec Children, the Wild Men of Borneo, etc.)
