Anderton & Rowland were a Bristol based travelling showground operator, whose rootes went back to 1872 when the business was started by Albert Haslam who performed as Professor Anderton. He was later joined by his son who performed as Captain Rowland. The original Anderton & Hasland name was changed in 1900 to Anderton & Rowland following a restructuring.
