Summer Stock Sunday - 20












A vintage look at summer for Summer Stock Sunday, hosted by Robin at Around the Island.












This picture was taken by my grandfather in the mid-1940's, when my mom and her brother were taken to the travelling circus when it visited Sydney, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia.

I've always thought this shot looks like a still from an old film.

Mama Zen says It does look like a still from an old film. That is so neat!

Patty Reiser says This photograph reminds me of "The Little Rascals." Wishing you a wonderful Summer Stock Sunday! Celebrate Life and Capture It!

Robin says Certainly nothing says summer better than cotton candy at the circus.

This photograph reminds me of the television show here in the USA called "The Little Rascals" I loved this show growing up as a kid. They just don't make 'em like they used to.
Wishing you a wonderful Summer Stock Sunday!

Celebrate Life and Capture It!

What a great shot, it really does look like an old movie still, and certainly nothing says summer better than cotton candy at the circus.
