Small RR Shows from 1900 to 1920 – CD # 23
Collected photos from some of the major circusiana dealers, these Photo albums have been compiled into a huge collection of circus history not easily found in today’s viewing opportunities. I have painstakingly preserved these scrapbooks on a CD for your viewing pleasure and circus historical research. I doubt any of these photos are available on eBay from anyone. This album has over 250 photos in it from small circuses traveling by rail at the turn of the century. You’ll find titles like the Campbell Bros., Bob Hunting, Kit Carson Buffalo Ranch, Sells and Downs, Frank A. Robbins and more.. Some are enlargements of others but just a few. Priced economically at less than 10 cents a photo, this is one great way to share circus history from collections that are no longer available.
