The Good old Days!
Ah, the good old days. This is the Barnum & Bailey train as taken in 1909. It must have been a water stop to have the bottom sideboards off of all the cages. The photographer is not indicated but this is now part of the Conover Photographic collection.
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.
