More Austin Bros. Circus

These photos are all marked Canton, IL. but I don't have the exact 1945 date for them. This wagon looks pretty shabby.

Austin Bros. played Canton IL on June 12, 1945. There is an article by Wm. Elbrin on Austin Bros. Circus in the January-February 1962 issue of Bandwagon. These shows, that went to rails during WW II, have always been fascinating to me because of the odd mix of equiptment used, old carnival and circus wagons and converted trucks
