Sketchpad – Goblin Circus Stiltwalker

Goblin Circus Stiltwalker

Page from a sketchbook found in the boxcar. Either a preliminary design sketch of a stilt walker costume or a sketch from life of the costume itself in action. Elements of the costume were said to have been found in the boxcar, but were lost in the subsequent barn fire at the auction house.


“Witches’ Apothecary” Shooting Gallery

Shooting Gallery

Exhibit Caption:

The largest box in the boxcar contained many small objects that appear to be targets for a shooting gallery or ball toss game. The name comes from a description given to the collection by the auctioneer who presided over the eventual sale of the contents of the boxcar. The largest collection of targets were lost in a barn fire on the auctioneer’s property.
