Cristiani Bros. 1960

Does any one know who these folks are?  The gentleman in the stripped robe look's like Papa Zamperla, whom had a riding act on the Hamid Morton Circus in the mid 70's when I was there with the elephants and tigers.  Note the roof of the vehicle to the left.  I wonder if the plaid was custom ordered or if it was added later on.

The clown in the brown vest and dark hat is Boghonghi.
Thanks for showing these pictures. I've been doing research on and building a replica of the 1959 Cristiani Bros. Circus. If you have any more pictures, they would be greatly appreciated.
