EDITORS COMMENTS
Step right up and witness the awe-inspiring spectacle of a brave woman taming a wild alligator in this photograph from the Chipperfields Circus, circa 1964. The woman, dressed in an ethnic African hat and a long grass skirt, exudes confidence as she points to the massive reptile with an outstretched arm and a controlling finger. The alligator, with its powerful jaws and menacing eyes, is contained within a sturdy cage adorned with metal bars. The lush green grass and the arena's earthy tones create a stark contrast to the raw power and primal energy of the wild animal and its human handler. The Chipperfields Circus, a renowned name in the world of circus entertainment, was known for its daring and thrilling acts. This image captures the essence of a bygone era when the line between man and beast seemed to blur, and the thrill of witnessing the untamed wilderness up close was a source of fascination and excitement for audiences. The woman's unwavering gaze and the alligator's focused stare create a tense and exhilarating atmosphere that transports us back to the 1960s, a time when the circus was a symbol of adventure, danger, and wonder. This photograph is a testament to the rich history of the circus and the unique bond between humans and animals, a bond that continues to captivate and inspire us even today.
