Noted Circus Elephant Historian who collected hairs from elephant's tails, I remember my father would pluck one from every new elephant he came across and mail it to him.
Written on the back:
"King Bros. Circus
Dover, Ohio May 15, 1955
The writer on "Carrie"
Burt Pettus along side."

Ernestine Baer once told me that Cheerful Gardner did the head carry down the hippodrome track being swung like this from side to side like a pendulum with each step while the band played, "Tell Me Pretty Maiden Are There Any More At Home Like You?"
Surely the same elephant, her name was "Lizzie".
