Update, urgent question from Angie in UK, see comments below: Has somebody an answer?
Well, there I am -- yes, Showbiz David when he dug suits and ties, at Chipperfields Circus, near Glasgow, in the 1960s. The picture widens next week.
I could not resist posting this, roused by Douglas McPherson's sobering account, in his book Circus Mania, of the rapidly shrinking Brit "circus" scene. This picture, to those savvy enough to guess the context, reveals a whole chunk of my early life. A life long gone by. But that life took me to Scotland, where I also took in Roberts Bros., and -- my favorite show of the three -- the one at Kelvin Hall in Glasgow at Christmas time.
So circus fanish of me -- posing as if I owned the show. I, too, was young once.
Inside the tent, during set up. Perhaps somebody across the Big Pond will recognized this man.
A land of graceful beauty. A land that fog makes love to.
