"Big Rosie" #2

I don't know anything about them prior to "Jumbo". Mueller had a mixed act many years afterward with "Rosie", a camel, a pony and a Great Dane dog.
They eventually settled out in California and "Rosie" was retired to the Everett, Wash. Zoo in 1951 and died there 4/6/56.
Maybe Jim Clubb might have some early European background.

Love the way these men style! These are men right? Ones job seems to be to keep the wardrobe on Rosie. The females wardrobe reminds me of the outfit Barbara wore with the Madonna style top. This is a very pretty elephant act. Where has it all gone?
