Nearly forgotten but glorious art, envisionings and historical oddments from the back corners of the internet
A selection of images from the “Recueil sur exercices des Franconi au Cirque Olympique” which is in the collections of the BnF Gallica, the Bibliothèque nationale de France. Starting out as an equestrian theatre company in 1782 Paris, it was run by the Franconi family for decades. Closed in the 1860s.
On a voyage to see how much mileage I can get from the creative ability and eye for images that my family thought was useless. On line art curator, fiction writer and now blogger. Historian's daughter. Follow me . . .even I have no idea where I'm going next.
