Ringling Estate: Howard Tibbals

This is Howard Tibbals.  He fell in love with the circus as a very young kid, and as a teen-ager started building miniature circus wagons.  It was a hobby that took hold - got way out of hand, actually - and he's been at work on his 3800 sq ft miniature circus for over 50 years.  It is the world's largest such model, and depicts the Barnum & Bailey Circus as it looked from 1919-1938.
