    Lot of Four Fabulous Old West Circus Albumen Photographs. Each print measures 4.25" x 3.75" and is mounted inside red printed borders on studio board, cut from a larger album. The series depicts an un-named circus arriving in an un-named western American town. Two of the photographs feature the circus parading down the dirt main street of the town and easily seen is the horse-drawn band wagon and its uniformed occupants and a cage wagon, which under magnification appears to have a lion in it. The town's main buildings are shown in remarkable detail. The remaining two photographs were taken under difficult lighting conditions but show the activities under the big top including an elephant, horses, and a zebra. The photographs reveal ever more detail under magnification and are in excellent condition. This is an historic set of photographs, worthy of further research.
