John Robinson's 10 Big Shows #4

Tim Buckley on the horse in 1903, the three small elephants at left would eventually become the Robinson Military Elephants "Clara", "Petite" (Pitt) and "Tony" the young tuskers are "Tommy" and "Basil" and the two big elephants are "Tillie" and "Queen".
The show must have carried a lot of musicians in those days, in parades we see them on band wagons, horses and even an elephant, not to mention the clown band and side show band.
