I think Marriott Edgers poems have a touch of reality to them. The Blackpool Circus animals animals could have been cagedbehind the Marque. The Blackpool Zoo was a fair distance inland from Blackpool. Wallace was a big attraction at tha Circus. The Ramsbottoms must have lived close to the Circus because Dad sent Albert back with a shilling to see what the Tigers ccould do!
