Records about from William "Buckles" Woodcocks Blog at http://www.bucklesw.blogspot.com/
Miss Nelson from the celebrated Nelson Family of acrobats was married to noted elephant trainer Louis Reed whom she met when he was in charge of the herd with Sells-Floto.

1926 Reed purchased the Adele Nelson elephants 6/7/26.

Their combined talents produced one of the top acts of the day, in fact this picture was taken shortly after their return from England where they had been featured with the Bertram W. Mills Circus in 1929-30.
