Title: Photograph of a Cetlin and Wilson show at the Georgia State Fair, Macon, Bibb County, Georgia, 1960
Side show, 1960
Date: 1960
Description: A photograph of a Cetlin and Wilson show at the Georgia State Fair, Macon, Bibb County, Georgia, 1960. One of several shows brought to carnivals and fairs, via railroad, by Jack Wilson and Izzy Cetlin. This particular side show is a "girl show" of some type. A sign reads "In Person Syrena," and there are several costumed women on stage. The name "Raynells" appears on the marquee in reference to Raynell Golden who produced shows for Cetlin & Wilson. Flyers on both sides of the stage advertise "Syrena, Raynell Show, Cetlin & Wilson Shows." A crowd is gathered on the midway. "Georgia State Fair 1960" is typed on the top left edge of the photograph.
