Wade - how did the Bertram Mills elephants get to be in Oklahoma?

Steve.
I was wondereing that very thing myself. Maybe they took a trunk road.

Steve,
I believe they stampeded.

With the Atlantic to impede, the strength of their stampede, how did they succeed? Must have been great weed!!!

Steve,
Great poetry! I can remember a sign on a van that said "Gas, grass, or ass. No one rides for free."

Steve and John,
I applaud your efforts to correct something apparently wrong. The back of the picture is written Mills Bros. Circus(Bertram). I guess that meant they were supposing.

G'day Mary Ann,
Did the van also have a sign- If it's rockin', don't bother knockin'?

Or, less poetically - Lost your cat? Check my tyres!

Regards.
