#1 Extra

This is how I remember Mr. Watts from Kelly-Miller 1950-51.
Not a pleasant thought, as a Candy Butcher my "Chinese" was to hang the side wall between the menagerie and Big Top, a chore he was never satisfied with since it involved squeezing people past his Reserved Seat ticket box selling "Seat Checks" to many people who already purchased a seat.
The Millers prided themselves in operating a show without Grift but I remember my father saying "He creates more heat than any of the Lucky Boys on shows he had ever trouped with!"

Another great series! Keep 'em coming, I love the older photos! I thank you for the anecdotes and people IDs that accompany each photo.
