1887-1888: Georges Seurat: The Parade (Circus Sideshow) [Post-Impressionism; France] Seurat tackled a nocturnal scene in The Parade (also known as Circus Sideshow and La Parade de Cirque). The setting is a working class district of Paris in 1887. Fernand Corvi’s traveling circus has come to town. In order to entice citizens to buy tickets, the circus put on a free sideshow of music and acts in the evening.
Too bad Justy the clowns travelling circus didn't come to my home town. The one question I would ask is, what happened to assisting the persecuted Christians and Yazidis from Syria. In his overzealous to inject some Moslem "cultural enrichment", he forgot about who were the truly persecuted people. Just how much did the Aga Khan influence the converted Justy ? Was the paid for all inclusive Caribbean holiday one of his rewards ? The West's Real Bigotry: Rejecting Persecuted Christians

Vintage Barnum & Bailey Circus Poster. All I recall was the traveling circus coming to a nearby town. The big draw for me was the midgets or 'little people.' I thought they were wildly exotic with the show ladies in ball gowns and furs and they all rode in a Cadillac! sth
