Hunt Bros Circus (Fred Hoffman)

These two semi's were used to transport the Elephants on the show. Hunt's Elephants were always featured on the Sealtest Big Top tv show. As it was presented live from Philadelphia, on Saturday mornings, back in the 1950's.
The Hunt's Elephant Trainer back then was Capt. Roy Bush , quite the character, who was Henry Bush'es Uncle. Henry know as the Circus Pretzelman hailed from Newburgh, NY and is a very active Circus Fans of America member now living in Sarasota .
