Gatti Charles Circus

Posted By on December 29, 2011

This ad in the Daily Colonist. Victoria British Columbia, Canada. May 9, 1967. If you have the chance to work on the Gatti Circus, do so. Dad and I had our the chimp act with them when they first started out. The late Joe Gatti and his family were #1. The above photo is not one of the Henry chimps.

    Very cool to have this pop up. My Grandfather, and near namesake, was Alvin Charles, Joe Gatti’s partner. Saw the show whenever it hit town, my brother and I both worked for them at various times in the 70s. Thank you!
