Bailey's Royal Buxton Punch and Judy Show 1901

2 mins United Kingdom

Harry Bailey's Punch and Judy booth is set up on the high ground overlooking Buxton, giving an excellent view of the town with a steam train in the station. A crowd of men and children look on, while a boy with a drum and whistle is presumably there to drum up trade and take the hat round. The show itself features a real dog as Toby, and a ghost which frightens Mr Punch out of his wits.
