One Man Show

While in Sarasota, Florida, I wanted to see the world’s largest miniature circus, The Howard Bros. Circus Model at the Ringling Museum.

The model is a replica of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus from 1919 – 1938.

It was created over a period of more than 50-years by master model builder and philanthropist Howard Tibbals.

This guy handmade an insanely huge amount of little models of people, trains, homes, tents and everything else found near or in a circus from a century ago.

Howard is 75 years old and is still building these things.

Pretty amazing.
