Herriman Saturday

Monday, April 6 1908 -- An impressive full page spread, featuring a Herriman-drawn parade around the border, greets Examiner readers this morning. You can bet this page had every kid in town screaming bloody murder at the 'rents to go see the Shriners' Circus parade make its way through the city.

Note that the circus parade reaches its conclusion at Prager Park. The magnificent Shrine Auditorium, well-known venue of the circus when in L.A., would not open its doors until 1926.
