Life With Louise* - The Circus Comes to Town

*Mary Louise Vaughan Dallis kept several photo albums and scrapbooks.  They were filled with family photos and scenes of daily life in LaGrange, Georgia between 1900-1935.

In 1905 the Ringling Brothers Circus came to LaGrange, Georgia.  Louise included several pictures of the circus parade in her album.  Apparently people were able to walk around the back lot of the circus because Louise (or someone else) was able to take snapshots of some of the circus animals.

Now I think of these pictures whenever I see a box of animal crackers!

Here come the clowns!

Every circus needs elephants

and camels.
