Wall of Death


"A thrill a minute! A mile a second! Don't miss the opportunity to see this exciting daredevil. Racing and driving around a board wall! Daring deeds to shock and thrill you! One slip could mean disaster and death!"

Carnival Sideshow
1950s
from Carnival Midways

I think I remember seeing something like this at some low-grade circus. Or...maybe I dreamed it.

I'm watching Carnivale on dvd, so it's on my mind.
