1832: the caravan was titled Birchard & Co. Menagerie.

1833: it became Gregory, Crane &Co.

This firm was a continuation of Birchard & Co (30), most likely as a result of its sale to Spencer Gregory (1802-1882) and Gerard Crane (5, 10). The chief attraction of the collection was the elephant Flora, which was first advertised by that name with this company.

1834: Edward S. Eldred (1811-1850) owned and operated the American Circus in 1834. Beginning his tour in Mobile, Alabama, in January, he worked his way across the South until he reached Baltimore in October. The Gregory, Crane & Co. menagerie (36) had reached the same area at the same time. There then occurred the transfer we alluded to above, in which Crane joined with Eldred while Gregory joined with the Washburn’s and two new shows were created: Crane & Eldreds Menagerie and Gregory, Washburn and Co.

1835: In 1835, the menagerie became part of The Zoological Institute.
