    The girls may not be happy with me for telling this, but I think this photo was taken about 1971 or 72, in the backyard of M & M Circus Internationale at the Illinois State Fair in Springfield. Also appearing at that date was the late great Murray Hill with his elephants Onyx, Tory, and Dutchess. It was their first date back on the road after an extended run in Las Vegas.
