Long Description:
Originally this carnival wagon was used for the Zippy the Pinhead strip titled "Caravan of Terror", dated 8/5/2003. It was used again nearly 16 years later for the "Send In The Sounds" strip of 6/29/2019.

Located at the International Independent Showmen's Museum in Riverview, Florida is a carnival wagon that was used for the first pane of the "Caravan of Terror" strip of August 5, 2003.

According to the director of the museum this particular wagon was the office of Bill Capell of the Capell Brothers Shows. The Capell Brothers Shows were primarily circus sideshows and carnival midway shows. In fact the Capell Brothers Shows were advertised as Americas Cleanest Midway. They primarily traveled through the southwest of the country in the Arizona area.

This wagon served as the main office for Bill Capell and his wife Mamie. It can be located in the backlot of the Showmen's Museum.
