During the late 19th century, freak shows were at their height of popularity. The attractiveness of freak shows led to the spread of the shows that were commonly seen at amusement parks, circuses, and dime museum. The amusement park industry flourished in the United States by the expanding middle class who benefited from short work weeks and a larger income. There was also a shift in American culture which influenced people to see leisure activities as a necessary and beneficial equivalent to working, thus leading to the popularity of the freak show.

Conjoined twins, bearded ladies, pinheads, tall men, and swallowing swordsmen....human marvels whose existence defied explanation.
