Martha Morris - The Armless Wonder
Known professionally as Martha the Armless Wonder, Morris was a featured attraction at Coney Island and the traveling Freak City Show in the 1920s. While on exhibit she would demonstrate remarkable dexterity with her feet by writing and typing with her toes as if they were full-fledged fingers. Morris also appeared in 1932’s Freaks, alongside another famous armless wonder, Frances O’Connor. This must have been very special to Morris, as going to the movies was one of her favorite things to do. According to her father, she wanted to go to the theater every night she wasn’t working.
