RINGLING: Adler and Jerome


A 1935 Ringling press photo, which looks to have been taken outside the old Madison Square Garden, featuring Felix Adler (l) and Paul Jerome (r). The woman is unidentified, but I my guess is that it is Lola Dobritch.

Does this photo scream "CIRCUS" or what? Just throw an elephant in there and it would be an all-time classic!
