Clyde Beatty-Cole Bros. Circus ( from Peter Rosa )
What's left of the truck at the left was Dave Hoover's cat act truck. Dave told me that this was one of the two Beatty cage trucks and that they had to cut the entire cage off due to the urine and rust and just used the trailer to start over with.
I performed from 1973 to 1995 with a couple years off in between. I did an aerial cradle act for three years, low wire as a clown, trained llamas, ponies, then lions and tigers for 15 years. I am now a firefighter, a member of the Circus Historical Society and an author of several circus and carnival related subjects.
