BARNES • JOHN ROBINSON'S • HAGENBECK-WALLACE RINGLING BROS. and BARNUM & BAILEY ★ One of the seventeen AL PRIDDY lectures We are glad to recommend AL PRIDDY'S Stories of Circus Life and Animal Training as being authentic, says Geo. F. Meighan of the RINGLING BROS. and BARNUM & BAILEY COMBINED SHOWS. His many seasons with our Circuses—and others before coming to us—in various capacities, back on the Show and on the advance staff, have given him abundant opportunity to gather truthful material for his interesting and instructive talks. By reason of his training ability and experience AL PRIDDY is well qualified to speak on any phase of the Circus—its people—and its animals.
