RINGLING BROTHERS
Fleet Center Boston, MA


 Members of CFA's Tent #30 went on a Sunday train ride of 2 hour to take in the Ringling Brothers, Barnum and Bailey Circus in Boston at the Fleet Center. The security fround apon people taking pictures of the compound outside of the building even if you were on the street. So I got a few good shots from the Elevated subway line that stops by the Fleet Center. A few of the members had their picture taken with one of the Shows Clowns. Members were Sanford Ingram, Ernie tTarbox and Harry Gordon.
