Gollmar Bros. Circus 1922.
Three big elephants are "Nellie Lockhart", "Bughouse Alice" and "Wallace Lizzie". The young male is "Toto".
To the unaware, this was Clyde Beatty's first circus.

Incidently, Gee Gee Engesser might be interested to know that included among the young elephants is "Mary" later of Schell Bros. Circus fame 1928-35.

Not to put too fine a point on it but this same outfit had been out as Howe's Great London in 1921 (having just been bought from Wm P Hall and possibly Fred Buchanan) and it was under the 1921 title that Beatty joined out- at the Ohio town of Washington Court House.
