Lulu (El Nino Farini), the son of the Gilarmi Antonio Farini (born William Leonard Hunt), who was considered the greatest showman of the nineteenth century, began his professional career at an early age as an acrobat in a circus and became known as "The Queen of the Trapezists." After a devastating accident, his spectators realized "Lulu" was a man. He never performed again. Not long after, he took up the profession of portrait painter and photographer.
