In 1890, the peanut seller wore a suit covered in real peanuts

The incredible suit covered in real peanuts was worn by a peanut seller in 1890. I love that he even has a hat covered in peanuts to his left. This peanut salesman’s costume is head and shoulders above any costume from Burning Man this year.

Today, wearing a suit like that in public would likely result in many an EpiPen or two being used.

The photographer was Henry H. Buehman (1851-1912) of Tucson, Arizona. (source)
