More Cottage designed wagons

This 1926 Gentry Bros. cage was photographed by J.V. Leonard and graced page 17 of the Sept, Oct. Nov 1961 issue of Bandwagon.

This is not a cottage cage.

Granted it is not nearly as elaborate as some of the others, but the man is clearly standing up in the raised section giving a non-typical roof.

A very "basic" comparision comes in the old John Robinson seal den #31 with a fully rounded roof. I use this simply as a wide open comparision.

Isn't there a reproduction of this cage at the Hall of Fame in Peru?

Regarding whether or not this is cottage: Conover's "anything that doesn't have a flat roof" may be a little broad. After all, many many circus wagons of old had arched roofs.
