"Here are a few more elephants in this advertising post card for you to identify--if you believe their advertising! You spoke of the lease for the two years 4-paw-Sells was off the road and Bill Cooker dated the photo 1913, after 3-Paw-Sells had returned to the road for 1910-11. Can you tell us about the Gollmar Herd
in those years? How long did Ringling continue to lease elephants to their cousins? Nice to have Bill contributing to the blog. Dick Flint Baltimore
"The elephant Herd
on 4-Paw & Sells for the final two seasons (1910-11) consisted of 14 elephants and George Denman, brought over from Barnum & Bailey, was placed in charge." Buckles
