Default the Steam CaLLiope "America"/QUEEN CITY

Now that the subject of Steam CaLLiopes has been brought up,, here is a chunk of Steam CaLLiope history;;
Im currintly working in Baraboo,Wisconsin at the Circus World Museum on the America Steam CaLLiope.. this instriment was originally on the QUEEN CITY (not sure of the dates) but appears on the R.J. HESLOP in Elizabeth,Pa July 4 1934 and is in the video posted by Jon Tschiggfrie ..YouTube - Steam calliope clips - Elizabeth, PA
From there it went to the I.LAMONT HUGHES for a special tow they ran,..
A Short time after that it went to the Forephugh Fish Circus which was bought out by the Cole Bro. Circus some time in 1936 or 1937 ..And has been in the America wagon scents 1940..
This Steam CaLLiope also appeared in Harry Truman's inaugural parade in 1949.. And is one of LAST all original Thos. J. Nichol CaLLiopes that is fully functional on Steam..
