Great Detective work # 2
This photo was taken in 1932 in Chicago of the RBBB herd. This is the same set-up as the very next photo. You can see a sidewall background behind the herd at the left side on top of the hill. This is taken from a different angle than the next photo but it is the same elephants on the same hill.
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.
