Curtis seat wagons

Here are three great photos of the Cap Curtis seat wagons. These were taken in the West Baden, IN. winter quarters of the Hagenbeck-Wallace Circus around 1920. Sadly, there's no credit to who the photographer was. Our Circus Model Builder friends should really enjoy these.

If you visit the International Circus Hall of Fame in Peru, Indiana and you are lucky enough to ever catch the gift shop open, you can buy one of these seats for $20.00 or $25.00 I believe. They have taken the barn that was built out of these down, saved all the lumber and are now cutting them into one seat sections as an actual souvenior from the Hagenbeck-Wallace Circus.
