Ringling-Barnum Circus 1943/ Merle Evans #4

"A circus bandmaster deals with such interesting people as aerialist Lee Wallenda, shown here discussing a drum roll for her act with Evans and Frankie Holt".

A little about Elizabeth "Lee" Wallenda, she was married to Karl's brother Herman, and when they seperated she still worked in the Wallenda act, even went across the wire on Herman's shoulders. I have a newspaper item about that and of course they speculated whether he would drop her or not.She later became Lee Kimris wife of Henri & partner in The Kimris Airplane Act.
