Morse & Rowe Circus – I have a photocard of this circus on parade in Calgary about 1905. I would like to know more information about the circus such as where they were based and approximately when and where they travelled. The first name may actually be Morris, however the card is hand written as such.
The Norris & Rowe Circus was in the city of Lévis, in front of Québec City, on the St. Lawrence river, Province of Québec, on the 2nd of August 1909. See the newspaper from Québec City called Le Soleil, August 3, 1909, p. 8.
The Norris & Rowe Circus was in Joliette, Province of Québec for 2 representations, at 2 and 8 P. M., on the 20th of September 1907. See the newspaper from Joliette called L’Étoile du Nord, September 12, 1907, p. 3.
My great grandf and grandmother preformed with the Norris and Rowe Circus just after the turn of the century. The act was called Kelly and Annette, The circus ran through Canada and if memory serves into New York and PA. Let me get in touch with my mother and see what else I can find. Respond back if I’m on track with what you want.
