Al G. Barnes Circus - Sidney Rink

From the Circus Historical Society on Facebook:

"Everybody loves the elephants. Here's the Al G. Barnes Circus elephant boss Sydney Rink in 1914 with some of his charges." //CHS on Facebook

"Sidney Rink was Tim Buckley's assistant on the Barnes Show 1911-12 and boss elephant man 1913-19. These are Al G. Barnes first four elephants about 1913 "Ruth", "Babe", "Jewel" and "Pearl"." //Buckles Woodcock

"Great information, as little could have been more important to Barnes at the time than his first 4 elephants. 1911 is also the year Al. G. met up with a highly ambitious carny dancer destined to become his Tiger Queen, Mabel Stark." //Roger Smith

I eagerly anticipate associating with new individuals with an interest or history in elephants, elephant history and elephant record keeping. If you have further information regarding the animals or locations questioned in the article, please leave a comment or message me in an effort to complete their records for elephant historians.
