One of the interesting practices of Coney Island and other entertainment venues of the early 1900's was to bring in indigenous people groups and put them on display. Here you can see a group of Filipino Natives in loin clothes. I am not exactly sure how this worked. To us, it looks quiet degrading. I wonder if the subjects of the display felt exploited, or whether they were enjoying the trip to America, and laughing at the crazy people willing to pay to see them.
