Circus Dreams is a photographic narrative of the Great Circus Parade that winds its way across southern Wisconsin and northern Illinois for two days each July. Seventy-five antique circus wagons are mounted on vintage railroad flat cars for the journey, which ends in Milwaukee with three days of circus festivities and a parade down the main street. Nice photographic detail of ornate carvings and brilliant paint jobs. Too bad the accompanying text is so inane. Fortunately, it's also quite brief. B
