    Amazing pictures! Just had a search as one of the trailers says ‘Lord John Sanger & Sons’; John and George Sangers were British brothers who ran a travelling circus and zoo during the summertime from the 1850s, in 1884 the brothers ended their partnership with each then starting their own circus business. I read the brothers moved North for sometime with the circus, and this must be John Sander’s own circus, so perhaps he came to Newcastle at some point?
