Loaded Wagon Moving out to next town Posted 6 12 1024x540 Al G. Barnes Circus Loaded up and moving to the next town. I noticed a man siting on the flat bed car. His head is low and his arms are folded over his knees. As I gaze at him sitting there, I can’t help but wonder what is going though his mind. Maybe the same thing that went though my mind after a hard days work. Off to the next town and do it all over again.

Barnes Sells Fpoto 1937 Tickket wagon Posted 6 12 1024x771 Barnes & Sells Floto Circus #3  This is the show’s ticket wagon…. 1937. No longer in use, photo taken in winter quarters.

Many of the dates on the photos that I post, might only mean when they were shot. Not necessarily the age of the of the subject.

 I want to thank Bob Cline for his comment.
