    This is a dog wagon with each one of those doors being a comparent to carry the dogs from the show. The Indiana License plate comes from RBBB owning the American Circus Corporation that wintered in Peru, Indiana.
    This is also possible to be an Al G. Barnes Dog wagon that came to the RBBB WQ after the 1938 season. It could be a Hagenbeck-Wallace dog wagon with the Indiana plate and mismarked as RBBB. Where’s our Ringling experts?
