Amazing photos.... And the dumb animals Look well looked after ...... The elephants do too come to that (drum roll, high hat) how can any one think they look anything but fit and healthy.

It's a shame those days are no more.

Jim is that you on the right..... How long ago was it taken?

Still trying to find out what a "barker" is... I have a couple at home, they only work when someone knocks on the door, and need to be put in their kennels lest they pee all over the house.

Go to Sideshow World and look around.
Less than 2% of reported UFO's turn out to be actual interplanetary vehicles.

I must admit I thought that side show people didn't like the term barker.

Don't need to..... I was making a very obvious joke. Barker is an offensive term, unless referring to canines... which I did. If you go to Sideshow World, you'll see me!

Strange, considering about 95% of "sideshow" performers aren't really sideshow at all. A more accurate (and respectful) title is "variety act" performer.... especially if your act has never seen a tent or midway.

Most buskers and variety acts now list circus and or sideshow in their
publicity, but when asked to do a season on a tenting show they have
no inclination to the life.
They are in effect sight acts or specialty acts, misrepresenting themselves
and never will be what I know as circus or sideshow.
There is a distinction as has been discussed here previously.
