[Dogs. Elephants. Horses] Fillis Great Circus

Friedländer, Hamburg, ca. 1895. 85 x 65 cm. Lith. no. 790.

Folded. *Fillis Circus, owned by Frank Fillis, was the most famous circus of South Africa at the end of the nineteenth century. The circus owned very impressive circus buildings in Johannesburg and Cape Town. He used the country's political climate, The Boer Wars and Zulu Wars, and any upcoming interest in ethnological exhibitions, eventually touring London (1899) and the World Fair (1904) in St. Louis, to show the "true" South African way of life.
