CARNIVAL POSTERS

Tommy Leibel and "Nosey"



Hello Sir, I stumbled across your blog here about a month ago and really enjoy it. And was wondering if maybe you could help me remember this guys name, I meet him and his elephant back in the spring of 07, he had two his kids with him and his wife was back in Florida having another. My folks own a show up here in the Midwest and the circus pulled into one of our spot, so I walked down to their lot, just to watch how they do it and I met this guy, his kids and elephant. The way I understood it, he use to own that circus, but sold it to another guy, but still wanted to do his elephant act and help with the booking. But just wanted a name to go with the story, he was good people, I also met a lady,her husband and son, they owned the bear and of course I can't remember their name either. PS. I also enclosed a couple older show posters too.
Any other material you'd like to share we'd be only too happy to post!
