Sole Bros. Circus came to town

Sole Bros. Circus came to town in the 1950s.

Growing up in Dayboro during the 1950s was pretty quiet with not a lot of entertainment for children other than the “pictures” in the Dayboro Public Hall on a Saturday night. Do you remember those old canvas seats? Probably the most exciting thing was interval when you could go and spend your pocket money at either the “top shop” on the corner of Williams & Bradley Streets or the “bottom shop” now known as the Dayboro Café.
There was huge excitement when Sole Bros. Circus came to town and set up in the Railway Station Yard. The circus tent looked absolutely huge.
One of the circus trucks is parked with a couple of wheels on the cricket pitch.
The Stationmaster’s house can just be seen on the left. The house next to the garage (now Puma Service Station) can be seen when you look between two of the trucks. The bunya pine at the Dayboro Butter Factory is a good landmark.
