For me this Era's Promotional Visual Style of Illustration & Photography along with the manner of the Interesting , Informative , Factual Naration displays & portrays a Fine Quality & Standard compatiable with all the aspects of the Human & Animal Thrills portrayed within the Tent Shows Exciting Atmosphere of that time , including the Bands , Wagons , Costumes , Rigging , Concessions , Fragrences , Odors etc. SO - That Classy Program / Booklet was a cherrished " Tangiable " keepsake , remenicance and proof to the unfornate , of that " Awing Magical Experience " that just appeared in that big ole empty lot across town One Morning ! and disappeared just as fast the next day !

Whew -
( the mornings storm grounded me.)

My humble words bow to Bud's verbaldom as I'm sure he speaks for many of us!

Bud, You make my day worth getting up for. Like words of wisdom for the day used to be printed. Hows the weather there now? I now have power and water. These past blowdown pictures on the blog are like looking out my windows. I still haven't found all my poles. Not a hole in the tarp. I will never put up another tent here. Twice a year I am chasing them down the road. Getting to old for that. Now I am using 6 x 6 treated lumber for any structure. The circus life made us strong to weather these nasty days mother nature throw at us.
