Circus Vargas--Early 70's

This is General Vargas, whom has been mentioned in the past. The girl who presented him at this time was Christina. Does anyone recall her last name?

This is what Vargas was when I first performed there covering for Pat Anthony. Not the one ring shadow of it's former self seen today.

My Dad worked for Circus Vargas in the 1970's. His name was Robert M. Murphy. He was a driver, set up the tents, and sometimes worked with the animals. I'm trying to get a hold of Michael C. Gorman. If you know any contact information for him please let me know!
