LA Railway: Al G. Barnes Circus, 1935

One of my favorite Los Angeles CA passes. That great tiger graphic, SO deco! But also for the delightfully named founder of this circus. Info from Wikipedia:

 

"Al G. Barnes Circus was an American circus run by Alpheus George Barnes Stonehouse. [He] started the show in 1895 with a pony, a phonograph, a stereopticon."
