The third and fourth views are the Sparks Circus, 1920s.

No - - RBBB 1943. That's the year they did the faux street parade as the spec. There was no menagerie that year but some dozen cage wagons were in the back yard to serve in the "parade."

Geez, you are really spanking me today. I'm not going to take any one's word, other then yours any more. :)

Thank you. Is the sea lion cage still around or was it destroyed long ago?

All of the Sparks cages were destroyed in Sarasota in the late 1930s to 1940s time frame.
