Summer of 1955

Mr Walter E Hunt was yet another Tivoli Garden visitor, who on a budget tour around Europe reached Denmark.

"From there I went to Tivoli Gardens, a popular tourist place similar in many ways to Disney Land. I was fascinated by a flea circus at one of the booths there. The ringmaster, using tweezers, hooked fleas up to small carts and wagons, which they pulled across small circus rings, and did other gymnastics. Skeptic that I am, I looked for magnets or other devices under the table but saw nothing."
