Some awe-inspiring 1930s acrobatics – would you have enough confidence in someone to jump this high? I wonder where she was leaping from, she couldn’t have jumped that high off the ground surely?!
1930s acrobats on the beach
I’m not the most coordinated and flexible of people, so I have a natural awe of acrobats (and dancers) and the amazing things they can do with their bodies! These 1930s acrobats were photographed on the beach in Sydney. They make this look so easy don’t they?!
A man-pyramid, 1940s
A very impressive man-pyramid from the 1940s. Acrobats never cease to amaze me with what they can do with their bodies, just wow! This photo was taken in the 1940s (some towards the end of just after the Second World War) in Egypt.
Is this a trick photo or does this girl just have amazing skills?
A girl standing on tip toe on a champagne bottle in a pleated costume and top hat from 1904. Is this even possible? My balance is absolutely terrible so it certainly seems impossible to me. Do you think this is a trick photo or just some acrobatic brilliance..?
