Baltimore - Parades - Ringling Brothers Circus Parade - Charles Street - Ca. 1904. Circus Parade on Charles Street. A note in the folder reads: "The dating of these two photographs may be determined as follows: The smaller, with the pencil note on the obverse reading 'Baltimore Street Views, N. Eutaw St.' is a photogrpah of a wagon of the Carl hagenbeck & Co. Circus which existed in 1904 and 1905 (in 1906 it became part of the Hagenbeck and Wallace Circus) - if street names indicate a post 1905 date then it is Hagenbeck and Wallace. The larger, printed on obverse 'Circus parade on Charles Street' is of Ringling Brothers Circus and must be dated between 1896 (the year this wagon was constructed) and 1903 (the year in which the bell on the top was lowered). -Stuart Thayer, 276 Sumac Lane, Ann Arbor, Michigan, April 11, 1975".
