    Carnival, wrestling bear, all alive... Life's canvas is the richest painting of them all.

    Another worthy photos for re-print and for people that love Tatoos or Carnival art this would be collectable.

    This was a "Continuous" show. You paid your nickel and entered; when you'd seen all the acts, you left.
    The brown pelican has its own perch, so it certainly traveled with the show. I don't see any chain on the leg, so it was probably a pet bird rather than a captured bird.
