Chang and Eng - 1853 Promotional Booklet

Chang and Eng are the most famous Siamese twins in history. In fact, they are the most famous sideshow act in history. As part of P.T. Barnum's early line-up of performers, Chang and Eng were a sensation of their time. This is a rare 1853 booklet featuring them--purchased on eBay in January of 2008.

  1. Chang and Eng actually gave the "name" Siamese Twins to thee world! They were so popular as Conjoined twins, evey set of conjoined twins that came after were called "Siamese Twins"!
