WagonI have found a restored circus wagon for sale, and anyone with about $19,000 laying around might be interested in this.

Circus wagons were typically highly decorated, works of art. They served to transport the circus before the days of trains, but they also served as advertising. The wagons would be featured in the free street parades luring rubes back to the circus grounds to pay admission for the big top show.

This wagon was restored in 1990 and is 8’ 9” tall.
