Circus Day In Our Town (1949) is an old black-and-white 15-minute film presenting footage from a 1949 circus.
The film shows clowns putting on their makeup, folks walking around the fairgrounds, many beautiful costumes, and various acrobatic circus acts. I'm thankful that these circus performance scenes are preserved on film, as they are from a fascinating yet controversial subculture of the past.
Circus Day In Our Town (1949)
Scenes of a big three-ring circus include the arrival, the parade, unloading, tent raising and highlights of the show itself. This film has amazing footage of a circus coming into a town, the townspeople helping with construction of the circus tents, the clowns preparing for their performance and the variety of circus acts and the crowds viewing them.
End of The Guardian Review
As Heloise Wood reported at The Bookseller, Guardian Review bids farewell after nearly 20 years.
They present it more as a restructuring -- "From next week you can find even more agenda-setting literary journalism in the exciting new Saturday magazine where there will be new columns as well as long-standing favourites in the new Books section" -- but too often these things lead to less coverage. Recall the grandly-announced New York Media to Triple Books Coverage Across Sites Including Vulture and the Cut from a couple of years ago, which lasted ... about a week.
We hope for the best .....
