Raising The Big Top!
Here are a few photos of the raising of the Big Top from the 1970's 100th Anniversary Ringling Brothers Circus Book I found at an antique mall. They bring to mind the book, Water for Elephants, by Sara Gruen. Have you read it? A fascinating novel and look at circus life in the early 1900's. Not always a pretty picture, for sure, but certainly an interesting read about a part of our country's history not often written about.
