The Sideshow That Ended Abruptly 

This collection was amassed during the late 19th & early 20th centuries by a Showman who traveled the county exhibiting the curious items until the 1940s when he died in a manner that was anything but natural.  His collection was recently rediscovered and is now displayed for the first time in nearly 80 years.
