I guess this is the Houston one. At my advanced age all parades look alike to me. This one is also Hagenbeck-Wallace. It's on Main Street at the corner of Rusk Ave, as you can see.

I think both Hagenbeck Wallace and Cole Bros of the 1930s paraded their elephants single file. However, both B&B and Ringlng marched them two by two in the pre-1920 parades.

I assume that was because they had more than most circuses and a long single column would have been more difficult to manage.

Even so H-W of 1933-34 had over 20 strung out single file.
