Mills Bros Circus 1955

You can see some of the Mills Horses in this picture, naturally the wrong end.
Standing in front of them is a young Fred Hoffman, but I'm not sure who the Gentleman with him is. Maybe someone out there could enlighten us.
Also you might notice the show's address on the truck cab is St Louis. Well back in thos days all the shows used that address because their mail was sent to the Billboard Publishing Co. which was in St Louis.
