Gollmar Bros. Circus Newspaper ads #5
These aren't the best in the world I know. I took them all off of microfilm but they all display an inherent beauty to the artwork that just isn't seen anymore. This is from Iowa City, Iowa on Friday May 20, 1916.
I performed from 1973 to 1995 with a couple years off in between. I did an aerial cradle act for three years, low wire as a clown, trained llamas, ponies, then lions and tigers for 15 years. I am now a firefighter, a member of the Circus Historical Society and an author of several circus and carnival related subjects.
