I don’t mean to confuse you. The person on the horse is not Terrell. I believe this photo was taken when Terrell had his circus, around 1950. The exact date I am not too sure of.

It is hard to say where this photo was taken or on what show. It is an outdoor spot and I am guessing the date to be around 1949. Terrell was known as the “Lion King.”

“Terrell The Lion King”

| September 16, 2009

This is one of Terrell’s publicity photos used on the Barnes Bros Circus. In 1938 Terrell was with Al G. Barnes and Sells Floto. The same photo was used then. I tried to count all the cats in this arena, there are over 30. Many are hidden behind the safety cage while others are covering each other.
