Both photographs below were taken inside Memorial Gym in October of 1954 during the annual boy scout circus. Boy Scouts from Perry, Breathitt, Knott, Leslie, and
Letcher Counties participated. Tickets sold for 50 cents for adults and 25 cents for children.
In the first photo - Troop 90 from Hazard performs a first aid exhibition. In the 2nd photo you see Troop 90 acting out an Indian attack on an early
settlement. Note the Indians attacking (and the many dead Indians on the gym floor). You can also see some of the audience members on the bleacher seats.
