A Steam Operated Ride

I really don’t know how I got this photo. It was among all the other old pictures. On the back it says 1800’s Blackfoot, Idaho. Note the platforms sleighs, and what looks like Merry-Go-Round horses in front of them.

The White Face Clown

I wish I could remember his name, too young at the time, and now too old. I enlarged this photo to honor the clown and Mr. Quillen. All my Grandfather’s Tin Types pictures were reproduced by Mr. Quillen.

On the back of this picture very faintly, I could see Cole Bros. There was more, but impossible to make out.

Aerial Trapeze

I guess this photo to be from the 1940’s, an indoor show, might be a Shrine date.

Hind Leg Stand

Another old picture, can you put a name to this photo? These photos without any identity were in an old trunk of my fathers. They did not have anything written about them….thus my lack of information. Hopefully someone will be able to help identify some of these.
