Caption: Bearded lady. Annie Jones (1865-1902) was known by the stage name of Lady Esau. She was also known as Annie Jones-Elliot, from her marriage to Richard Elliot. Her second marriage was to a William Donovan. Her long career was mostly spent with the travelling show 'Barnum's Greatest Show on Earth'. She was one of the most celebrated bearded ladies of her era. Hirsutism (excessive hairiness) is usually caused by abnormally high levels of male hormones in the blood. Artwork from the eighth volume (second period of 1891) of the French popular science weekly 'La Science Illustree'.
