What we know about this image :

Sangers Circus passing along Musgrave Street to the delight of the crowds.In the background is Ward Jackson School next to (possibly J. Wilson's ?) Boot Palace on the corner.

Thispicture possibly dates from 1886 when Sangers Circus undertook a huge tour with West Hartlepool being the most Northerly call.

A popular song of the time detailing the tours was popular with the West Hartlepool section being mentioned as

"West Hartlepool was rather cool"

but they tried to our monkey's"
