Siamese Twins 1914

Violet and Daisy : English Siamese twins : “if we have interested you kindly tell your friends to visit us.”

Postcard, ca. 1914.

Postcard showing Violet and Daisy, conjoined twins, linked at the hips and buttocks with shared blood circulation but sharing no major organs. The photograph shows one playing the piano and the other the violin. They look to be about 5 years old here. This postcard would probably have been sold as a souvenir at places where they were exhibited as part of a freak show
