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!

MEMORIES: HAMID-MORTON 1952, BALLET


Bertha had a full career in the Circus, after being a Roxyette, she joined Peaches Sky Review, and when that troupe disbanded she joined The Wallendas, doing productions, & did a Wire Act with Gene Mendez. She later became a member of the Wilford Mae Trio, Hoop Juggling Act, the hoops used in that act were actually oak bicycle wheels, and juggling them was no easy task. Bertha married Frank Campisi who was a Diver in The Flushing Meadows Aqua show, and did a trampoline Act. Appearing with Bertha, (left rear) are, Helen Amandis, Terry Nachamkin Abbot, Joannie Letty Valentine, & Joyce Bridenbach Canestralli, (Pietro's wife). In the front row are Eslsbeth Cosmo, Eva Corona Williams, Gracie Hanneford, Annie Edleson,(Robbins), & Joyce Vidbel
