The Circus Friends Association (CFA) was founded in 1934, at a time when 'Lord' George Sanger's Circus was at its height. Although 'Lord' George Sanger's life as a circus proprietor has been well described, in his own Seventy Years a Showman, this is the first published study of 'Lord' John Sanger's Circus:
  • Pimpo, a versatile artiste who parodied many circus skills,
  • Sanger's Elephants,
  • Royal Cream Horses and Ponies,
  • Clemens Merk and his Lions,
  • Dick Turpin's Ride to York.

Illustrated with photos, programmes and posters from the CFA Archive and private collections.
