That appears to be a real pelican perched on top of that sign. I wonder if it was trained to stay there by throwing it a fish every now and then.

"Teddy The Wrestling Bear" photo

The caption should read: "Talker at Vermont State Fair, Rutland. September 1941." The term "barker" was the invention of a novelist. Needless to say, a great photo and the price of admission wasn't too bad either....Earl,{a former "carny" with the Skerbeck Shows which is still in biz for 150 years}
