Throwback Thursday Aug-27-2015

Today’s post is a short one, but I just LOVE these pictures…

Every year the circus is in town, you’ll see children and adults alike lining the street for a glimpse of the parade of elephants! I’ve never been fortunate enough to see my favorite animals close-up, but I have heard of this march quite a few times! Little did I know this tradition down Elm Street has been happening since the 1800s, if not even earlier! The most recent parade was in October 2013, click here to see a video!

Check out the slideshow below of images of circus parades in years past!

Special Thanks to the Manchester Historic Association and their incredible archives!
