This was 1956 the last year under canvas when they sent a couple of small elephants ahead of the show for publicity.

They were taking publicity shots during rehearsal in '78 and they hustled Mr. Feld up to Charlie one Morning and he seemed to like it, jumped right in there.

This is an interesting picture.
The Baraboo elephants were booked on some Southern Fair dates in the Fall and by coincidence the Beatty Show played this Fairgrounds a few days after the Fair closed so Johnny laid over, somehow contacted me while I was enroute with the Polack elephants and Johnny, Rex and I were assembled for a day on the Beatty Show lot and as I recall, refreshments were served.
