Ringling Barnum Lions and Terrell Jacobs (1938)
When Jacobs moved to Ringling Barnum in 1938, the artwork on this litho - originally used by Hagenbeck Wallace to promote Clyde Beatty - was rehashed with the Jacobs name. (Note the stylized "H-W" on the lion pedestals. Jacobs was a headliner that season and Ringling-Barnum also used a new Strobridge litho in 1938 promoting Jacobs' black leopard act.
