Minnie Frisby in Bromsgrove - in the middle of the 1880's, in the afternoon

from Memories: Minnie Frisby, pages I:12:

[S]ometimes there would be a Circus or Wild Beast show come to Bromsgrove; all the country people would try to go to Bromsgrove to see that thrill. I remember my Father used to bring the horse and cart to the school to take us, we usually had half day holiday, and oh the sensation of seeing the procession go round the town, there would be crowds of people lining the streets […]  and bands playing and dins of all kinds; ah what a sight.
