Disturbing Vintage Photographs Capture History's "Freaks"

Rewind to 1870 and you'll find photographer Charles Eisenmann in his New York studio taking portraits of locals, couples, families and high society. But in amongst the sea of normality, he had a fascination and some would say obsession with capturing the bizarre and downright unusual.

The following photos are a small example of his unique collection of individuals that were considered "freak" at the time. Today we'd be more understanding and sympathetic to their plight and disabilities but in the 1800's they were seen as curiosities of the human condition, exhibited for the almighty dollar at traveling freak-shows.

You can see the full range of Eisenmann work, via his official website.
