Unknown--Shrine Circus 1969

I have never seen this trick done. Was it common or would that help to identify?

It seemed to be a more common behavior in European circus's, as I have seen older acts from there doing this or something similar. The photo was "identified" as "Lou Regan" which I know for a fact isn't. There was a trainer on Clyde Bros. shortly before Lou, I think named John Smith who wore boots and jodphers, put I never say pictures of him with one of the French Foreign Legion deals on his head. Also, I don't think Clyde Bros. ever had a 5 act. It may have been an independent act hired for dates. I really don't know.
