As you can see they had a huge arena. It all but swallowed up the elephant act. Working the bulls is Velma Zimmerman. Some of these photos I have don’t have dates on them. I guess this shot was in the mid 1920′s. I’m hoping I will get some help on the dates.

This is one of their ticket wagons. They owned 3 that I know of.  Jimmy Woods bought one of the ticket wagon and used it on the new version of the 101 in 1945. There is a photo of it in categories, under 101 Wild West Show & Circus.
