Museum of the American Circus and Tibbals Learning Center

Sideshow posters

Ringliing Circus vignette 2

In the circus backlot

Circus wagon

These vignettes from the Museum of the American Circus are kind of creepy. This may not be altogether inappropriate: I am reading a novel called Water for Elephants, and if it is at all accurate, the circus back in its heyday was a little bit of an unsavory place behind the scenes.

I think I started to read that book and never finished it. Now you have inspired me to finish it!
