Sid Kellner Elephants #1

Barbara with the James Bros. Circus elephants in 1969. This publicity picture taken in Sid's driveway at his Estate in Martinez, CA.
They already had names, which I didn't care for, but I thought this would just be a tempoary job but as it turned out I would be around these elephants off and on for the next 12 years.

Outstanding set of photos. Buckles, I like the new masthead format with rotating pictures. Shannon is a genius.

Great memories from Uncle Sid's operation. I remember in Bowling Green, KY when Sid let the band leader go (who was an okay guy), he screamed at the top of his lungs--"and take that blankety-blank of a wife with you", (she was a real heat merchant). The tent crew let out a cheer with this news, as everyone on the lot heard Sid's proclamation. Arranged tickets for Sid, during Kaleidosapes visit to the Bay Area, he had not changed a bit, "Hey Pal!", was how he greeted me.
All the best to you and Babs, keep up the good work. Erik Jaeger

Did Sid keep monkeys at his martinez home?

Not while I was there.

I was a big top man in 1968, great memories. 5 dollars a day and room and board.
