Barton Bros Circus and Wild
Without a circus,
carnival week would not be Carnival week. Barton Brothers
have a happy knack of happening along about this time every year
to add their quota of fun to the scheduled gala and the show
which they have brought with them for the 1914 Carnival season
is, if anything, bigger brighter and better than on previous
occasions. Queensland Harry, the intrepid buckjump rider,
is the "piece-de-resistance," whiilst each of the many allied
acts in the diversified programme come in for a fair share of
well-earned appreciation. The circus is located at the
corner of St. Asaph and Colombo streets and will be open every
night this week.
The figure may be simply an
anonymous cowboy or he may be "Queensland Harry", the intrepid
buckjump rider, mentioned in the New Zealand Truth -
November 14th 1914.
