[Carpe Cubana's Flooded Show Camp]

Description:

Photograph of Carpe Cubana's circus camp in La Feria, Texas. The camp had been flooded, and members of the circus stand together in knee-high water. Some members of the circus carry household goods such as pots, bags of food, and fold-up chairs. Several men sit in the water, and one man even balances a teacup on his head. Plain tents are visible behind the circus members. A hand-written inscription written in white reads "CUBAN SHOW CAMP," and "LA FERIA TEX. 5/29/29."
