This image of Madam Milo was taken by Charles Eisenmann when he was based at 229 Bowery, New York. The card is captioned on front as “Madam Milo, Queen of Hair, Length 6 feet 2 inches.” Additional text on the verso reads, “Portraits by Instantaneous process. Extra Inducements to the Theatrical Profession.”

Madam Milo was one of many who traveled the circus circuit as a so-called “freak.”
