Ah...life on the carnival brings with it the many
joy's and delights of being a showman. Here we see a young gentleman who's
obviously thoroughly enjoying himself, trying drain excess water off the muddy
lot with a mechanical pump so the show can open ( rubber boots are so chic ).
The show is the Beckman & Gerety Show playing Corpus Christi Texas in the fall
of 1937 but it could just as easily be a photo of a lot on almost any midway
in America in 2015. Some things NEVER change.
