The girl on the far right is

Caroline "Pinky" Williams

who went by "Bale" during

her mother's marriage to Elvin

I don't know if she was really

adopted by him or not but she

reverted to Williams later on

Caroline has a son Dominick

from her time with "Seppely"

Joeseph Bauer Jr

Caroline was named for her

grandmother Carola who as

owner of Circus Williams

leased her show to Feld

I'll say it to my dying day, "Circus kids are the luckiest kids in the world."

Third from left is Stefanie Slavovi

An adorable & very agile young acrobat

"Steffi" was the top mounter on the

family riding and teretboard acts

On the left & 2nd from right

are Barbara & Buckles most

joyous & most feared team

they help maintain decorum

Not an easy job by any means

The kid kneeling in front looks a lot like Christian Stoinev. He spent many years growing up at the Big Apple Circus, went on to Illinois State and is still performing in venues all over the world.
