Ringling Bros. Circus 1985

Axel Gautier elephant's.  When people talk about act's you won't see anymore, they neglect to mention you also won't see one man working 6 elephants by himself any more.  Axel carried a willow whip in his right hand, with the longest lash I have ever seen on a whip, and was a master with it.  He didn't need a man at each elephant.

Those photos are from the 1986/1987 Blue Show tour.

You must be younger then me, and still have memory cells. You are correct on that. Thank you
