Here's an interesting photograph taken
in the early 1900's There is no Identifying markings to tell us
what, where or when. I love these photos because of the mystery
that they embody.
The colorful and detailed canvas pieces on the side are
identical...were these mule powered rides like the Rocky Road to
Dublin or were they shows of some kind or are the three tops
actually part of one single show? What could it be?
The hinged banners on the show top at the center of the picture
give us no clue as to what this was either but they hint at
being in an area where the wind can come up suddenly and with
some force as they can be dropped quickly. Could this have been
taken out west?
What do you think?
