Clyde Parke's Minature Circus

The nephew of Walter Parke has just alerted us to this fabulous creation by Walter's father, Clyde:

Most people don’t know or realize that Walters father Clyde Parke was a carver of wood. He lived in Memphis , During the depression Clyde was without work and bored, he loved the circus, so he hand carved a complete working circus he had in his attic,, When he was older and feeble he donated the circus to the Pink Palace Museum in Memphis,, They still run the circus at certain times during the week.
