The gentleman in the center of this photo is Fred C. Gollmar, one of the five original Gollmar brothers, cousins of the Ringlings and owners of their own railroad circus.
Fred Gollmar is seen here during a visit to Circus World Museum in 1965 when he was 98 years old. The photo also shows ringmaster Paul Luckey on the left and animal trainer John Herriott who were performing in Baraboo that summer.
