Paul's Texas Girl--Menagerie Dompteuse "tamer" from the past

Translated from French:  Group of 5 circus lions Dutrieu (Nancy, May 1914), William Circus (Germany, June 1914). [On the back:] Female trainer and student Hermann Haupt, who had married in 1910. After two years of commitments in South Africa with a group of lions that they had purchased the agency Schultze, Haupt and his wife had returned to Germany at the end of 1913. During the winter of 1914-1915, they stored their number in a cafe near Berlin. This is where Texas Girl was killed by a lioness repetition that she had to remove her cubs.
