Vintage American Circus Model Builders

One of my favorite miniature circus layout's is Clyde Parke's, which is currently seen, I believe, at the Pink Palace Museum, Memphis TN.

Hertzberg Circus Collection. Any idea's of what's to become of the Circus artifacts formerly displayed at the Hertzburg?

Willy Smiths Model Circus at the Circus Hall Of Fame. Does anyone know where this miniature circus is at now?

Last year the museum that now owns the Hertzberg collection (Witte Museum, San Antonio) had a temporary circus display of items from the collection including a few models. Hopefully someday there will be a permanent display.

Thank you. If I recall, the last time I was at the Hertzberg, in 1978 while playing the Texas Dates(when the were the TEXAS DATES) to be exact, they had a nice collection of Tom Thumb memorabilia.
