Ansel Adams:

"The Christmas Show also included a fully decorated snowman's cave, a staging area for Christmas plays, a gingerbread house, a magic castle, performing animals, Santa's castle, a fairyland, and a variety of amusement rides. The benefit, held at 5843 Wilshire Boulevard in Hancock Park, took place from November 20 to December, 25, 1940."

Looking north across Wilshire Boulevard at the entrance to Santa's Circus, one of the activities offered at the Christmas Show held to benefit the British War Relief Association of Southern California. The sign on the left side of the entrance gate reads, "Santa's Circus with Winston's Seals, Ernestine Clark Riding Act, Uncle Bill's Dog & Pony Show, Velarde Wire Walker Clowns."

Circa 1940
