Howes Great London Circus 1921

Posted By on September 8, 2017


Clyde Beatty seen here with his hand upon the head of an Hippopotamus. I believe at that time he worked as a animal handier. I wonder if he ever thought that he would become a great animal trainer and own one of the largest circuses in America.

    Howe;sI had two great uncles who worked for the greater London’s show, and Ringling circus
    this was in the early 1900’s . One great uncle was killed on the streets of NY on Oct. 30, 1916, As far as I know he was still employed at that time by Howe;s. He was 25 yr. old at his death. I am just interested in history , and was pleased to see a website for Howe’s Greatest London Circus. Thanks
