TWO VERY FINE GENTLEMEN. I KNOW BOTH THEM. DIAMOND JIM WAS A GREAT MODEL BUILDER, AND BELONG TO THE CMB. WE NOW HAVE A RING NAMED AFTER HIM.
JACK WAS BORN ON THE RINGLING SHOW, AND DID CLOWNING ON THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH, MOST OF HIS LIFE. TODAY HE IS A FINE SPEAKER AND ALWAYS A REAL GENTLEMAN.

I believe that the person in the center is former aeiarlist and birds of prey performer and operater of "Pirates Cove" wardrobe supplies in Gibtown and recently deceased and friend to all showfolks, Billy Rogers.
