  2. Geoffrey – where in the world did you find these photographs, they are wonderful. I just wish my Uncle Stan was still alive to see them.

  3. They are photos I have collected – my Great Grandad, Arthur Feely worked for Bostock and Wombwell menagerie.

  4. Dear Geoffrey

    This is almost incredible. My Grandfather, was ‘young Arthur’ – your great-grandad’s uncle. My grandad married a lady called Gladys Sheard. Little Arthur died when my mother (Patricia Feeley) was only 2 years old – she is now almost 80! Little Arthur had a brother, his name was George Feeley.

  5. Hi Alison,

    Very glad to hear from you.

    If you want to contact me I have got some photos of Little Arthur


  6. I am part of a Bostock family in Somerset. Apparently we are related to the Bostocks of the Circus fame. At Wookey Hole in Somerset ( which has been bought by Gerry Cottle) there is a collection of Bostock and other circus wagons etc.
