Five children watch a westbound Royal American Shows train at Hilton's Hill in Brookfield, Wisconsin. The children in the foreground are, left to right, two neighbors of the Farences, Connie and Adam Farence, and another neighbor. The children delight in merely seeing the train, in turn delighting ther viewer with their enthusiasm. The Royal American Shows provided midway attractions in the U.S. and Canada, and traveled by special train until 1982 when the company switched to trucks. Royal American's last show was staged in Lubbock, Texas, in October 1997.
