A large leap in the big top

RE­VIEW: Lin­coln Col­lec­tive Sale, Gold­ing, Young & Mawer, 18 Jan­uary

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling -

Cars are not some­thing you’d of­ten as­so­ciate with cir­cus en­ter­tain­ment – with the ex­cep­tion of clowns’ col­laps­ing ve­hi­cles, of course – but a colour­ful poster fea­tur­ing an in­trigu­ing Hum­ber-in­flu­enced ex­am­ple proved to be a real crowd-puller.

One of a num­ber of cir­cus posters in Gold­ing, Young & Mawer’s Lin­coln Col­lec­tive Sale on 18 Jan­uary, at a ham­mer price of £200 it was one of the best-sell­ing sin­gle of­fer­ings in the nos­tal­gic se­lec­tion of cir­cus and fair­ground mem­o­ra­bilia.

If any CCW reader was lucky enough to at­tend Sir Robert Fos­sett’s Mam­moth Jun­gle Cir­cus at Louth (or else­where) and saw Ronus The Phan­tom Leaper in ac­tion, we’d love to be en­light­ened about his car­leap­ing act! www.gold­ingy­oung.com
