JIM HAND--SHOW PAINTER
Jim Hand-Show Painter
Midway scene Allan C. Hill's Great American Circus in 1985. Concession trailer, office truck and marquee by Jim Hand.
LE Barnes 3 Ring Circus was the largest show I ever booked...I was originally hired as an agent but the sign painter they had hired was slow...VERY good but slow...I went back to quarters and painted 5 semis and a couple of other units in less than a week.
