September 17 correction: at first glance the photo looked OK for 1939 and the label on the back said 1939 so we posted it here. However, that automobile on the right looks like it’s from the late ’40s. Maybe it’s a coincidence but this circus was in L.A. on the month, day and year on the photo’s label.
