Royal American Shows
I never saw the Royal American Shows in operation but I did get to visit their WQ in Tampa on a few occassions over the years. This is the Sedlmayr's family coach which is now housed in the car barns at the Circus World Museum.
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.
