    I purchased this book because of family genealogy Some of my ancestors lived in Peru, IN and they told stories of the circus barns there.I enjoyed the book and the information, but, I wish there had been Names There were lots of pictures, but hardly any names and sometimes no description of the places.This book has circus information in it if that is only what you are interested in.


    Peru, The Circus Capitol is an extremely interesting book, chock full of old B W pictures As with all books published in this format and series, it is full of both details and photos Some times the story refers to the photo and most of the time it is not It is just a photo of the period When it is just a photo, it would be nice if there was a caption so details of the photo were known A great book for circus modelers for seeing those little details that help bring a scene or model to life A great resource book

    The author spent a full year researching and authenticating dates, names, and places.At it s height, the American Circus Corporation employed up to 4,000 persons.This book is a must purchase for those with an interest in circus history, printed on quality paper, with one or two archival photographs postcards on each page accompanied by text It delineates the origins of the circus corporations in Miami County, Indiana to the burning of delapidated wagons in 1941.The tradition is also preserved at the International Hall of Fame located on the old circus winter quarters and celebrated annually by the amateur youth circus Circus City Festival, Inc and the annual parade The Miami County Museum will also be an interesting visit for circus buffs and sells a packet of postcards for those who still know what mail is taken from Adkins book Use a search engine to obtain information on these entities Other books of interest to readers might include Don L.Chaffee s Indiana s Big Top and the manuscript Our Circus Heritage by Debbie Rose Fishback.
