Believe it or not, I have a vague recollection of seeing that cannon truck in use when the Barnum & Bailey Circus came to Minneapolis back before the turn of the century...when Pluto was a planet...when I was a little tyke (1978-79 or so).

Next question:
There's something very unusual about the front of the cannon truck too. What's 'incorrect' about that truck.

Joe are referring to the indentation on the roof for the Cannon Barrel?
