New Castle, PA. 74 miles. Grass. Warm, rainy.

In Williams, Arizona the highway signs along the interstate read "Los Angeles." Today, in Pennsylvania, for the first time the highway signs point to "New York City." We are into the East in the dog days of summer. Pennsylvania is a circus state. Once small wago shows worked routes from Girard while others headed west along the river valleys from Pittsburgh. In Philadelphia a meat cutter named Forepaugh built a railroad circus to rival Barnum, while Mr. Cooper and Mr. Bailey created a show that would buy out Barnum and Forepaugh. From the beginning this has been circus country. It still is.
