Cage # 28

The Cap Curtis designed Corporation cages are a lengthy study for anyone trying to get a grasp of what cages went where. This two section cage was originally built in 1924 for the Hagenbeck-Wallace Circus.

The cage on the right is shown here on the Sell-Floto Circus in 1932. Following these cages gets mind boggling after awhile. In trying to follow this cage, we are looking at primarily the two sections, the four carvings side by side on the center board at the bottom and the ribs on the front wall.
