The Humpty Dumpty Circus
Of Jim Sneed

The European Circus

Jim models his Humpty Dumpty circus after the European circus - lots of performers and relatively few animals.

Jim's Humpty Dumpty circus is built around acts - the acrobats swing on the trapeze, the clown directs his trained pig and cow.  He likes to mix reduced size and regular size actors. The sideshow panels are hand painted from ca 1930 (not Schoenhut).
