MILLER Bros 101 Velma Zimmerman working Bulls Posted 5 12 1024x654 Miller Bros 101 #8   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.

MILLER Bros 101 Ticket Wagon Posted 5 12 1024x814 Miller Bros 101 #9   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.

MILLER Bros 101 Band Wagon Posted 5 12 1024x617 Miller Bros 101 #11   This is one of the cargo wagons. It was never used as a parade wagon, however from the train to the lot it was still seen and enjoyed. Most of the cargo wagons just had their name and a number. The number on the wagon would make it easier to be located on the lot for unloading.

MILLER Bros 101 1927 6 Oxen Hitch Posted 5 12 1024x568 Miller Bros 101 #12    Another cargo wagon being pulled by oxen where it would be unloaded and spotted in the backyard. Most likely the oxen were also used in the show in one of the western reenactments. In those days everyone doubled in brass. Year 1927.
