Courtesy of Bob Cline--America

    Attached is the original configuration of the America. This is on the Barnum & Bailey Circus. The Asia tableau was built the same way and then had the upper half added years later. The America had been on the Cole Bros. Circus for a couple years before the calliope unit was ever installed in it. Once the Calliope and steam boiler were installed, the openings had to be made for ventilation and still be esthetic.
'What happened to the beautiful carved figures on the top of the original America?  You don't have them in your garage, do you Bobby?  :)
