Peru Circus Parade - Bill Prickett photos

Isn't this the old Gentry Bros. Calliope from the turn of the century?

Yes, it is one of the Gentry Twins but this one as it now appears is how it looked on King Bros in the fifties.

Though slightly altered at the back end and adapted to be pulled by truck, this is the ONLY surviving purpose-built (as the British so aptly state) calliope wagon. This was on the loose for many years and I often wonder why Chappie didn't go after it for CWM.

Does anyone know where this calliope lives now?

Matt,
I'm pretty sure its in the wagon sheds behind the Performance arena in Peru.
