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!

JOHN FRANCIS UNITED SHOWS # 1


Gilbert & Lillian Wilson's first & only son was born in 1913, just outside of Detroit, on the Circus Train, of a little Two Car Show by the name of Cooper Bros. They named him Gilbert after his father. Here he is about 6 or 7 years later on the John Francis United Shows, a Railroad Carnival.
