My fellow bloggers, associates of mayhem and fellow hysterical people, please note that the HINDU bagpiper on the far right is neither Hindu nor player thus making him the great FAKIR.
This negative was one of eight Gentry Patterson images found in the Conover negatives and Photographic collection.

Michael Hoffman shared this Harry Atwell photo. Michael also pointed out that the lettering on the wagon on the right is for the Sells-Floto Circus. No year is indicated as to when this was taken but you'll see a marked similarity to this and the poster coming up next.
This particular poster was just sent to me. It has been folded for some time. This was printed by the Erie Litho Co. sometime after 1941. The upper left hand corner that has America's Favorite Show now, used to have the owner portraits of Jess Adkins and Zach Terrell. After Jess Adkins died in 1941, those portraits were removed.
