A Native American rider the Sells-Floto Circus Parade heading south on Court Street in Fairfield, Iowa, in 1910. In the background are buildings on the north side of the Square.

The photographer was Ernest U. Peasley, a 26-year-old drug salesman who would open a novelty store on the east side of the square at 57-59 S. Court by 1911.

For the picture’s date and the name of the circus and the photographer, we are indebted to the June 25, 1964 Daily Ledger Historical Edition (celebrating Fairfield’s 125th anniversary), which reprinted some of this series of photographs.
