Ringling Bros  Barnum and Bailey1936 Unloading  Wagons from flat cars Posted 1 of 13!936. A crowd of circus goers are watching the circus train unload. This most likely was just as important as the main show itself.

Ivan at desk color OfficeI want to say thank you for the support, prayers, cards and letters that I’ve received from you my circus families and friends. My double lung transplant is now three months old. I feel as though I could go back on the road again, thanks to God.

Randy, Bob and Casey. Thank you for your kind comment.

JE_HenryHenry Bros Band Wagon early 1900'sHere is a photo that I never knew existed, but thanks to Bob Cline I now have another photo of the J.E. Henry Circus. I called Bob upon receiving this photo and gave him my profound thanks. We discussed the name change…… notice the blankets on the horses.” The Great Henry’s Show”. On all the other photos that I have ” Henry Bros Big Show” is used.  I think this photo may have been taken in  1927 0r 1928, showing Texas or Oklahoma.  The reason why I think this, for parades the band always was presented sitting on top of the elephant in a Howdah. However J.E. was known for changing his image and name to give a new and fresh look.

JE Henry route 1905 Henry bros 1976 In the fall of 1975 I took Henry Bros Circus back out on the road. Then in June of 1976 Henry Bros was showing with Capell Bros at Legend City Amusement Park in Tempe , AZ.   In 1978 I took the show back out on the road for a 8 month tour, which was quite successful. Then returned to Legend City. I put the show in the barn Nov. 1979.  The 1905 and 1906 route of course is my grandfather.

Ted Bowman circus route collection.  A thank you again to John Polacsek for making it possible for me to have this information on J.E. Henry Circus

Henry Bros route #3

This is an assortment of routes that John Polacsek put together from the Ted Bowman collection. Ted spent years gathering circus routes. The  J. E. Henry’s route was just one small part of many circus routes that Ted Bowman collected.

Henry Bros Circus Route #2From out of 16 pages of my grandfather’s circus routes that John Polacsek sent me I only posted 4. I have to admit that I am surprised in the amount of states and towns that grandfather played. I wish I could find J.E’s show route that he played in the late 1800’s.
