Circus Performers Astride Horses

Two horses stand next to each other on a tree-lined street, their reins held by a male circus performer, while Oscar Lowande, another male performer stands atop, with one leg positioned on the back of each horse, and his wife, Mamie Lowande, standing on his shoulders, creating a pyramid effect. They are members of the Forepaugh & Sells Bros. Circus. 1899
