Can anyone help?
This photo was sent to by Mary Beth Dugas. Her family had the Smith Greater Shows Carnival. She has been told that this photo is of the elephant named Candy and her trainer John. Does anyone know anything else about Candy or can you identify this picture by year, elephant headpiece, etc?
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.
