While we're here on Downie Bros. in 1928, here is a nice shot of Elephant Trainer Frank Phillips. The other guy used to play for The House of David baseball team, but he kept tripping over his beard when running the bases, at first he rigged up a bicycle similar to this rig, but they said you can't ride a bike around the bases. So after being released he joined Downie Bros. Circus, but they said you can't "ride" a bike in a Clown "walk" around, so he came up with this. And, if you believe that story, I know where you buy a bridge real cheap.
