Courtesy of Steve Flint--Barnum and Bailey Tableau Inquiry Below

Den # 91

Sarasota 1935

Sarasota 1940

It is so exciting to learn something new, and I am grateful to Steve Flint, Richard Reynolds, Jim Alexander, Bobby Cline, Bjorn Krebbers, the many anonymous, and all the rest of you fine folks who have been gracious in educating us. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

My next question is, why were wagons/tableaus/dens like these not numbered sequentially? Were they numbered in what order they went in the menagerie, with other wagons between? I would think a group of "like" wagons would be numbered in order, individual wagons numbered as they were used.
