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!

TRUDY & HAMID-MORTON ELEPHANTS



Here are two photos, one is a snapshot of a 13 year old Trudy Wilson learning to work with the Hamid-Morton Elephants, Bombay, Delhi, & Siam, worked by Al Vidbel. The picture was taken at Olympic Park in Irvington N.J. The other is Trudy sitting on Siam while working in the act in 1959, you can just barely see Al on the right side.

isn't this the same Siam that took off in the catskills for quite some time? also the road Vidbels live on in Windham is named after her???
