GREAT AMERICAN CIRCUS-1985


Ready for the Matinee.
These pictures were taken, I beleive, in Rocky Mount, NC on a Saturday early in the season.
Bill and I were concession managers.
This particular day a new big top was set up for the first time.
A lot of shows used to delay setting new canvas up until they were out of the red clay of the south.
