Pickled Punks / Life Shows

The showing of unborn babies in jars goes back to the earliest museums, including The Kunstkamera (or Kunstkammer; Russian: Кунсткамера) in Saint Petersburg Russia, established by Peter the Great and completed in 1727.

From the 1930's, up until they were widely banned in the 1960's, "pickled punk" show were on nearly every carnival show in America.
