Long Description:
A stunning Mosaic featuring a circus parade - Displayed above the front entrance of the Wells Fargo Bank, at 8595 S Tamiami Trail, Sarasota, FL 34238

The Mosaic is signed SH, but I can find no reference to this mosaic or the artist on the internet.

The Ringling Brothers also Barnum & Bailey made Sarasota the Winter home for themselves & their circuses, making Sarasota, the "Circus Capital of the World,".

"Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls: step right up to the Circus Capital of the World. Sarasota may be known for its sun and seas, but this beachy city also happens to be one of the world’s top destinations for bearded ladies, trapeze artists, and all things three-ring. And while the Sarasota circus tradition stretches all the way back to 1927, the contemporary scene is as vibrant today as it was in its storied past." Text Source: (visit link)

The Tamiami Trail is a Florida Scenic highway, that runs from Tampa to Miami a distance of 270 miles, but only 70 miles is classified as Scenic Highway by the State of Florida. The Tamiami Scenic Trail passes through the Downtown area of Sarasota.
