Which came first?
The Schell Bros. Circus was owned by George Engesser and operated under that title from 1929 to 1936. When was this letterhead originated? Does anyone have one with a date on it to know when it was being used?
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.
