Cole Bros. Circus

I Think this is the same cage as seen in the next picture 40 years later. I've been told this was built on the Cole show in 1937. My dad took this picture at the Paul Kelly farm in the late 1950's. If it is indeed the same cage, then it is at the International Circus Hall of Fame in Peru, IN. now.

I recieved an email from Mr. Dave Price, who is the foremost Beatty authority. He tells me that 4 of these cages were built in the Cole Quarters in 1937 for the Clyde Beatty act. This is the only one still in existance.
