Exotic Cart's

Luna Park date unknown. I note the name "Jackie" on the side of this wagon. Could this cub have grown up to become Mel Koontz's MGM Jackie?

Popular Mechanics 1924 We will await RJR for further insight.

This looks like circus man Al G. Barnes holding the reins over Lotus, the hippo that started out on Gollmar Bros., then went to James Patterson, Barnes and finally RBBB. When an inventory was made of the Gollmar show about 1905, her value was about 10% of the entire circus. She might still hold the longevity record for life in captivity. The cart she's drawing is preserved at Circus World Museum.
