On the Trail

The show moved over trails and rutted roads from town to town. Wagons went first in the caravan followed by the horses, camels, llamas, elephants, zebras, mules etc. All of the wild animals traveled in wagon cages. It usually took between two to three days to travel from town to town. This picture shows a mid-day break for the working men and a chance to feed and water the animals. Snuffy is pictured again with “Gyp”.
