Thanks for the pics SG. I've been to the Ringling Circus Museum in Sarasota, FL Circus travel was a major undertaking. Lots of hard labor. Like moving a small town every couple days.

sneakysnake, My son lives near Gibsonton,Fl, where lots of circus people go to retire. You see the strangest things at the Walmart there.

For sure pics from a mostly bygone era. Diesel locomotive, maybe late 1950ís or early 1960ís? Not many circuses left, few that are probably use trucks. None as big as Barnum and Bailey was though. I never got to go to B and B, wanted to go to their farewell tour but couldnít make it.

I just snapped them out of one our albums.
There's a few more I could get.

Thanks all for checking them out.
His best and fondest memories where whole families coming out to greet the train rolling into the yards, the children all waved and picnics were spread out to watch the unloading and erection of the tents.

Older steam pic.



He was a young fellow then.
