Circus performer Chief Pantagal. Pantagal, thought to be from New Guinea originally, but sometimes advertised as a South Seas Islander, was a circus exhibit. He featured as a sideshow at Ringling Bros and Barnum and Bailey Circus in the USA in 1922. Here, he is dressed in tribal gear and posing with a chicken. This photograph, which dates from 1918, was part of the human circus exhibits collections held at the Eugenics Record Office, Cold Spring Harbor, New York, USA.
