Hoxie's Lewis Bros Circus

When I first found these pictures I thought they were of John Lewis' Lewis Bros Circus.
But the more I looked at them I beleive on year or maybe two Tucker took out a Lewis Bros title.
If I'm wrong I stand to be corrected.
I HAVE BEEN CORRECTED--
This was John Lewis's Circus. Hoxie and Lewis were partners in the Lewis show he had out, and was later changed to Great American when he and Lewis split up.

  3. This was the 2nd Lewis Bros. Circus. Jim Silverlake and I were in partners on the first Lewis Show in 1972. I owned the Big Tops. Light Plants, equipment, elephant and most of the trucks. Hoxie wanted me to come back to the Hoxie show, and Jim wanted to take the show out on his own. I rented him the Circus by the week. Jim continued the show for 1-1/2 years, and I sold it to John Strong and Actor Parley Baer.
