One winter when the Webbs didn't have the dough to get it back to Rollo, the Russell show wintered in Donna and played up and down the Valley using the name Roselli Bros. They merely altered the lettering a bit on the two or three trucks used on this unit to change Russell to Roselli.The star attraction was Topsy the chimp whom they billed with some old "Giant Ape" paper. Kitzman pointed out the building in Donna where the show wintered, it still being there some years after the fact. Ask Barbara if the Rays were on that little winter tour.
