  1. Thanks so much for the great photos of a real old time circus Fisher Bros.
    They played Texas alot and made every small town in the area and made lots of money.
    I knew them all and Mel always wanted to be a cowboy and loved old B westerns and that was his hobby.
    They treated us fans the best and I have many great memories of this fine show.

  2. The red and white Chevy truck carried the elephant--Dixie-- she was a tough cookie.
