Cage # 50
Here it is beautifully repainted and fixed up in downtown Peru, Indiana.This gives a real clear view of the front. When it's not downtown for the Circus week, it is at the International Circus Hall of Fame. If you noticed the previous photo's carvings, you'll see this is now upgraded to a really good restoration.
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.
