This photo courtesy of Shorpy brings back good memories of the day the circus came to town. I don't remember seeing this circus advertising, but we did get visits in the Midwest from the Cole Brothers and the giant Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey circuses. I remember most poignantly going to see the circus setting up at our fairgrounds because my father who was not a great hands on kind of guy with me took me there. It was a great show in itself with the elephants helping in the heavy lifting
