Following the Chicago Worlds Fair of 1893 and its introduction to the American public of the sensational Little Egypt and her exotic and daring "dance", no self respecting carnival operation could claim to have a bonafide midway without an exotic, costumed dancer. This is another of my favorite photos, perhaps because it has no history with it but says so much. Who was this stunningly beautiful young lady? What year or even decade was it taken? Who's midway was she on?...the questions just add to the mystery that swirls around this interesting window into the past.
