Please note

Sorry, we don't have images or video for this item.

Provides an insight into the magic generated by the Royal Brothers’ Circus, a tent circus of a type that is fast disappearing. Torrential rains, axles sunk in mud, shaky performances, and a monumental tent that must be pulled up and down once a day do not inhibit the fifteen trucks and assorted beasts from travelling around at a rate of one town a day.
