Wendt of Boonton, N.J. is a well known photographer of circus and sideshow performers.

Many of the images will come with printed information on the subject or an ID on the back.

The cute little performer is not identified and I do not recognize her.

She appears to have been an acrobat of some sort and holds a small ring in her hand.

Any help is identification is greatly appreciated.

Reproduction of this image in any form is not authorized.

Thanks.

    I guess it could be considered an occupational image ... no? Incredibly interesting.

    Thanks reniederman. Yes, you could consider it occupational.

    Circus/ sideshow performers were photographed in great numbers by Wendt and have a solid collector following today.
