Are these Sue & Rudi's chimps

Sue Lenz said...

This was Bertram Mills Circus owned chimps that Rudi trained and presented.
Rudi was with Bertram Mills Circus for 12 years.
In 1964 we started our own Chimp act. "Sue & Rudi Lenz"

Regards,
Sue.

The wire act resembles Senor Tonito. The clown is Coco, a Mills fixture for years.

Bertram Mills closed in 1967. See Steven Rickley's superb history of Mills posters in the current BANDWAGON.
