This photograph is a large one of the Johnny Wall Cracker Jack candy stands at the Gorman Brothers Circus. It has their ticket truck, employees, tents, drinks, stacks of Cracker Jack and other candies all ready for a circus crowd. The truck, signs, and added text read as follows:

Hi, Ron :)

Thank you for sharing all your photos of Cracker Jack lore in all these threads! :)clap Great historical stuff too. Hey, this time period (1934) was the Cracker Jack Mystery Club! What wonders were to be found in those Cracker Jack boxes at the circus, what grand fun! :|p :)-

CJAAAJ :D

Alex,

Hi!

You are very welcome! It is a contribution that I am pleased to be making.

It is a real "Mystery" what lurks in those many boxes. It would be nice to travel back in time to find out. Some of the prizes could be the very ones in our collections right now.

I just worked on a few more old photos and uploaded them. There are many, many more to come. Keep watching. Hopefully more people will leave some comments.

Ron

Any interest in selling your 1934 Gorman Bros. picture? My husband's great uncle Tom Gorman owned the circus and I am trying to collect some memorabilia for the family. The circus was only in existence for a short time so it is difficult to find.

Hi Ron, Thanks for sharing! I think it is especially neat that the name of the circus, date, etc. are included on the photograph.
