Front page advertisement from The Bucks Standard announcing the arrival of the Circus
Mr W J (Jack) Ingram, of 31 Greenfield Road could remember Spring Gardens, Beaconsfield Place, Lovat Street and Bury Avenue being built on what was known as Thickpenny's Field --a large expanse of grass where all the town circuses and fairs were held. Hardly a week went by without some sort of attraction. Sangers, he claimed, was the best circus, with its parade led by 14 elephants.
