SELLS & GRAY CIRCUS-1972 (Fred Hoffman pics)

Here's some pictures from Fred Hoffman of the Sells & Gray Circus in southeastern PA back in 1972.
Sells & Gray was a sister show, along with King Bros, of the Beatty-Cole Show when it was owned by the Acme Circus Operating Company.
I beleive in this period of time the show was managed by Bill English.
He previously was the Side Show Manager on Beatty-Cole for many years.
And could he turn a tip! What a Bally He used to do on the Side Show.
