The mothers and babies were gillied back and forth from the train in this wagon.
At the end of the season I informed the Trainmaster that he could leave it in winter quarters because when we went out again they would march with the herd but he said, "No!, No! We have lots of things we can put in there and they did.

On April 4, 1958 the "Clyde Beatty Hamid-Morton" Circus opened a one month stand at Palisades Park, New Jersey. Photographer Bruce Davidson was on hand to record the occasion and in doing so took dozens of fantastic photos. Among his subjects, was clown Jimmy Armstrong. Some of these photos (including this one) have been published elsewhere, but I hope you enjoy what I believe are some of the most artistic circus photos of the 20th Century.
