William ('Wullie') Flint Frame et al. in Gilbert's Circus, Great Yarmouth - November, early 20th Century

from W.F. Frame Tells His Own Story, pages 58–59:

Still moving North, we next visited Huntly, Keith, Dufftown, and Buckie. […]

The fishermen in that district “follow the fish,” and in November of last year I met thousands of them in Great Yarmouth, where, on my opening night, they crowded Gilbert’s Circus and joined lustily in the chorus of “Hielan’ Rory,” to the surprise and delight of the natives.
