Sidney Rink was Tim Buckley's assistant on the Barnes Show 1911-12 and boss elephant man 1913-19.
These are Al G. Barnes first four elephants about 1913 "Ruth", "Babe", "Jewel" and "Pearl".

Great information, as little could have been more important to Barnes at the time than his first 4 elephants. 1911 is also the year Al. G. met up with a highly ambitious carny dancer destined to become his Tiger Queen, Mabel Stark.
