Carnival

Top of page

A travelling carnival comes to a small Canadian community, bringing with it games of chance, thrilling rides, side shows, and circus animals. Fred Davis is on hand to watch the metamorphosis of an empty field into an amusement park as workmen set up the show. From lion tamers, barkers and other carnival folk he gathers many impressions of the rugged but exciting life under the big top.
