Jules Jacot

Jim Alexander, do you know if these "Court looking" seats were made out of wood or were they some type of metal? They have an odd curvature to the sides. The round stretch boards above the back seats, look very similar to the stretch seats on the front of Pat Anthony tiger seats. As round is not a common shape, I wonder if Pat got the idea here?

My guess is they were made of wood, probably braced with some angle iron. Couple things to consider: The props weren't moved daily, stacked up, and bounced around. Weight wasn't a big issue. Maintenance was easier than on the road. Pat and Jules were both at Jungleland but at difference times. Maybe Pat saw Jules work if he worked a Jungleland act at the Police Circus at the Arena across from the Zoo.
