Additions have been made since the initial shutdown and the site now covers 1830 -> 1880. It will not proceed further until more playdates data has been filled in for the current range and maps upgraded. Get involved.
A new membership programme is being incorporated. Contributors are those who wish to donate data, don't want to be too involved, but would like to follow certain parts of the system and be advised of updates, etc. Researchers are those who want to be more involved and have access to all the internal benefits of the system. This level requires weekly upkeep.
Public viewers will still have complete access to all regular data. Members just get to see the background processes and on-going research.
This section covers Barnum tours not related to his circus & menagerie exhibitions.
The oddity in the P T Barnum Tours, is not so much the type of act, performance art, or museum display taken on tour,
but more so the innovative approach to touring taken by Barnum.
On more than one occasion, Barnum followed one tour by another, then by another, and perhaps even another, all in the same year.
These tours usually didn't list Barnum's name, instead mentioning operating from the American Museum in New York.
