The little gal hanging to the right should be Gala Shawn AKA one of the Gallager tribe.
The new Hassani troupe? ~frank
No, I think that's Tiny on the top, Muggsy at right and Bonnie in the center.
I agree with Buckles. Does anyone know Tiny's real name? Was she the only one to stay in the business after the family act broke up?
During lay overs at the fairgrounds while a youngin, after riding our bikes around town we would stop in Muggsy's tavern and score a free soda. A fond memory of the metropolis of Hugo.The last time I saw Bonnie would have been during the State Fair of Texas.
Don't know her real 1st name but Pat Valdo renamed Tiny Gallagher (the smallest of the sisters) "Gala Shawn"
Come to think of it I'll bet her 1st name was Shawn
Well I lost the bet but I found out what her real name was Genevieve Alice Marie Gallagher That should be good for a bar bet (but only at the club bar)
This picture was one of my Dad's taken in Allentown fairgrounds.I believe Billy Barton is also in that photo if I am not mistaken.Bob Good
