The circus was very popular.
In Europe the twentieth century was incredibly popular circus performance. Look at the wonders traveling circus came running from all districts. Magicians have demonstrated an incredible ability in your body, which in those days were more like magic.
So in 1907 with their performances the European public was surprised by Charles Fred. His performances took place in the Berlin theatre. Soon the enthusiastic people called Charles “the man with the iron throat.”
Now this is no surprise, but then, the man who swallowed sharp swords, knives and other items over 50 cm was considered a true phenomenon. The audience saw this as some kind of magic. Charles Fred once passed a medical examination, but the mystery of “the iron throat” was never solved.
Equally popular was the artist on a pseudo Auto-Atlas, performed on the Berlin stage Valhalla. Like a mythical hero, who was holding on his shoulders the Earth, a circus strongman on special design raised and held by the teeth of the 700-pound car with two passengers. By the way, and now this artist is worthy of applause.
However, the greatest impression on the audience made various tricks of visiting fakirs.
One of them was a Frenchman named Charles, who has long been in India and studied there from local yogis. He showed miracles of endurance.
Spectators impressed when on a wooden platform, under which lay Charles, came elephant, and then two assistants.
At the same time in Paris were a real Indian fakir – Raja Gulab Sagar, who lay naked on a bed of sharp nails. In addition, under his hand brought a handful of earth thrown on the seeds began to germinate. But that was real magic.
