Carnivals on Rails

I finished scanning and identifying another photo album with the help of my goood friend, Hal Guyon. Included in Album # 54 are over three hundred and twenty Black and White photos of Carnivals that travelled by Rails such as the Royal American Shows, Cetlin and Wilson, Smith's Greater Shows, Great Patterson Shows, Strates, Cavalcade of America and many more. There is one photo of the Wortham and Allen Water Circus calliope, one photo from the T.A. Wolfe Superior Shows, and photos from the Nat Reiss Shows, Johnny J. Jones Exposition, John R. Ward Shows, West's World Wonder Shows, World of Mirth, etc. Many of them fall in the Very hard to find category. This is not your average collection.
They are available for sale on my website at
