YESTERDAY'S TOWNS

HOWDY, MY NAME IS BILL STRONG, I'LL BE YOUR "24 HOUR MAN", ROUTING YOU INTO THE PAST TO SEE WHAT THE CIRCUS WAS IN DAYS GONE BY. IF YOU'RE LIKE ME, AND MISS WHAT IT USED TO BE, THEN COME ON ALONG AS WE GO DOWN THE ROAD FOLLOWING THE ARROWS BACKWARDS, TO "YESTERDAY'S TOWNS"! IF YOU HAVE CIRCUS RELATED PICTURES YOU WOULD LIKE POSTED, SEND THEM TO,,,,yesterday1@verizon.net,,,,AND WE WILL TRY TO FIT THEM IN. "24 HOUR MAN" WILL HAVE THE FINAL DECISION ON POSTING.

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!

THROUGH THE YEARS


We're starting this trip from the first season of Lee Bros. Truck Show, in the early 1930's, this is Dime Wilson, and Felix Morales' wife Ida. This is the earliest indication I've seen of Dime's eventual transition from Whiteface to Tramp.

Another trombone or hallo in the picture. Are we starting a trend? I would kiss the foot of the persons who invented the camera. A true angel for all the pictures we are all enjoying from years past.

This is a rust mark from a paper clip, it's a miracle if anything stored in Florida for a while survives. If the moisture, & mildew don't get it, the bugs will.

Before I read the caption, I was thinking it looked like Dime Jr., except the time frame wouldn't be right!
