Cage # 12 - soon to be # 50
The cage was safely stored in the ring barn at the Paul Kelly farm for years. As you can see hear, the carvings were all gone and you'll want to notice the skyboard as well. When Paul and Dorothy kelly had their auction, this cage went to the International Circus Hall of Fame on the other side of town from the Kelly farm.
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.
