Making a vintage Flohzirkus

Dark Roasted Blend hat ein wunderbares Posting über Andy Clark und sein neuestes Projekt: Den Nachbau eines viktorianischen Flohzirkusses.

The idea to make a Victorian Flea Chariot came to me when I wondered if it's possible to use simple techniques available in the 1800s to make one today. Although there are no detailed specs of chariots used in the early days of the flea circus, I've seen some of them in videos. So, my design is largely based on those from Elsie Torp's Danish flea circus and those seen on the British Pathe Newsreel.
