“The oldest showman in England”: the remarkable John Bellamy (1808-93)

A lecture about John Bellamy, one of the best known travelling showmen of the South West.

Travelling shows were a familiar sight in 19th century England. In its day, one of the largest and best known of these was John Bellamy’s “British Model Gallery”, a collection of models of historic buildings that toured the country for almost half a century until 1893. Using unpublished memoirs and contemporary newspaper accounts, the talk will trace the career of this Gloucestershire-born showman and his Bristol connections.
