I have aquired three circus photos which I would like more information. I am uncertain if they are related to each other. The first is an old building with “Half Century Circus Reviews By Chas. Bernard, Riverside Place, Savannah, Ga.” printed in the upper left hand corner. Handwritten across the bottom is “Barn where Newton Brothers Circus & Indian Show wintered 1872.” Another line of writing is unreadable. The other two are printed postcards with no printed information. One is a woman on stilts with a long plaid skirt covering her legs and poles. Her face is not made up but is very sad almost harsh looking. Hand written at the bottom is “stilt walker, Rerds (maybe Berds) show. The last is a woman standing beside a person or two, dressed as a giraffe. The costume includes a small head, long neck, and fabric covered body. Handwritten at the bottom is “girl clown”. I would appreciate any information about these pictures.
Thank you! Nancy Gillett
