Three years at CWM made me a real traditionalist, and I keep remembering Bob Parkinson saying, "I want the people to see what the circus used to be, not what it is today. That's what this site is about!

HAMID-MORTON CIRCUS 1955


This is Bob Atterbury's High Wire Act with Bob, his wife Vernice, & Penny Wilson doing Iron Jaw underneath. I'm sure David Orr will recognize the location as Jaffa Temple, in Altoona PA. They used to take the Chandelier down for Airplane Acts, and they looked great in that dome. People who know the size of that building won't believe we did it for Howard Suesz one year with the Kimris Act, the Pharoahs Cradle, Larry Ruhl's Hanging Perch, Roselle's High Wire, & Palacio's Flying Act.

The Covention Center on the beach in nearby Asbury Park, NJ has a ceiling that looks very similar.
