Known for their wild dos, these "Moss-Haired" girls were popularized by Circus man P.T. Barnum as a sideshow attraction  in the 19th century.  I've been collecting Circassian cabinet cards and cdvs for a number of years.   I imagine that if I had lived at that time, my hair would be quite similar to theirs.   Ah, the wonders of hair-gel.
