The image shows a parade of Barnum's Circus ascending Milsom Street, Bath. This image is probably the one which Bird registered for copyright at Stationer's Hall on 4 November 1902, reference COPY 1/458/32.

Graystone Bird's own business premises (number 38) were about half-way down the street on the left, just above the howdah canopy on the second elephant in the procession.
