Baptiste Schreiber's teeter-board elephants with RBBB
in 1950. "Lelabardi" at left and "Manula" striking the board.
After only one season in America, "Manula" died during
Ringling's winter engagement in Havana.
After return to U.S. "Lelabardi" was sold, along with several other
elephants, to Mills Bros. Circus where she remained
until that show closed in 1966 and the elephant herd sold
to Gran Circo Union in Mexico.
