Two girls practicing tumbling on a mat in the open, with 'Big Top' behind them. This photograph shows Melba Holden (right) and Audrey Holden (bending backwards) of Holden Brothers Circus. They are practicing a tumbling routine in costume, Inverloch, late 1940s. Melba remembers: 'If you were ever practicing, you would put on what you would perform in, so you knew how it would work in your performance.' This was the same Inverloch tour as MM111181
