Things I Like: The Traveling Circus

I'm going to start making a weekly "Things I Like" post featuring cool stuff that I'm interested in. Since  I love anything that has to do with the circus... I figure this will be a good place to start.  I love it so much I've even taught myself how to juggle and ride a unicycle. (Still working on doing both at the same time. Hehe.) Although, what I would really love to do is aerial acrobatics. There are a few places you can take aerial silks classes here in the city and I'm looking into starting soon - I'm excited. Also- There are some really good books out there of old circus imagery from the 20's - 30's. Step Right This Way: The Photographs of Edward J Kelty  is definitely worth checking out. Personally, I can  look through old photographs for hours.

* If any of these photographs are yours please let me know! I've forgotten the sources.


  1. whoa, these photos are simultaneously creepy and awesome.

  2. I love looking at circus pictures from back in the day. I always wanted to be the girl who could tame a tiger or work with the horses.
