Cappi's Photos 8THIS IS THE HIGH FALL DIVE………..The photo was shot on an angel to try to get as much tower as possible. Ron can barely be seen as he jumps from the workers platform directly under the cable rails. Remember this jump was over a 116 foot. The total height of the towers was 135 feet.

Ringling Bros Barnum   Bailey  1938 Carved Lion Cage Wagon Posted 3 of 13Carved lion cage wagon. This wagon was used in parades, because of its beauty. Most of these wagons have a name, other than lion cage wagon. I do not have any information that gives me a name. It’s now up to a circus fan.

Ringling Bros Barnum   Bailey  1939  Cook house Posted 3 of 13The shows cook house photo taken in 1939. Most all that were on the show took their meals at the cook house. Performers and working men alike, but there was a different seating areas provided to the performers. I was told that some of the cooks came from the military and the others were taught by them. I am sure professional cooks were hired.

Ringling Bros Barnum   Bailey  1938  Baggage Wagon Posted 3 of 131039, Wagon # 39 was a baggage wagon or cargo, according to the photo’s notes. Just a few years before, this wagon had the wooden wheels and was pulled by horses. It has been converted over with modern semi tires and most likely pulled with a Mack truck. I wonder what they did with all the old wooden starburst wheels?
