"My Father Owned a Circus" by Robert H. Gollmar

This is the cover of the 1911 route book as printed in its entirety in this fabulous book by Judge Gollmar. The Gollmars as every one knows were cousins to the Ringlings. They called Baraboo home as well. Their show existed for 25 years closing under Gollmar ownership in 1916. I can't explain why, but rarely do you find anything about the Gollmar show. No posters are displayed in the books that have been printed. You just don't see contracts and other paper laying around. A Great legacy left behind and Judge Gollmar's book captures the essence of the Gollmar bros. Circus completely.
