Circus Band in Raton, NM

This photo shows JE Henry, my grandfather, in his buggy leading the parade.  In the background you can see the wagons heading to the circus lot. The six member band on the top of the elephant “Gyp”, were at one time musicians in the Mexican Military. Grandfather hired them and they remained with him for years to come.

Over the years Grandfather played Texas, Oklahoma, Arizona, Idaho, Utah, California, Montana, Colorado, Oregon and Washington.
