RINGLING BROS & BARNUM & BAILEY CREATED BY ANNA STYS CIRCA 1920 IN FIVE PARTS

This is a photo album created by Miss Anna Stys. The album is dated roughly 1920. Also included are miscellaneous photos from I believe her time in a traveling music show.

Miss Stys did work as a bareback rider and daredevil  for Ringling Brothers Circus after leaving home at age 14. I understand she actually ran away from home to join the circus. Her obituary says that she also traveled with a musical comedy show and did stunts on airplanes.

Also included are photos of Ringmaster Fred Bradna. He was present at the Hartford circus fire where about 168 people did under the big top along with over 700 injured.
