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!

SARASOTA CIRCUS 1984


Jimmy Cole tells me this was taken in 1984, and since he took it I'll go with that. It was in October, so probably the Shrine date. There is something about working in Sarasota, I've seen jugglers who never drop anything, drop everything, Rope Spinners get all tangled in their ropes, and animal acts have all sorts of problems. For Trudy, working her Liberty Act, it was her worst nightmare come true when the horses blew the ring. I think every horse person in the business was there, and true to Circus Spirit they were all out there to round up the horses and were around the ring to help in case she had more problems. Circus folks are like that you know. This is Trudy with her lead horse Caballo, both dressed for her Dalmatian Dog Act.
