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!

PEDRO MORALES


I know this is not under the Big Top, but it shows a young Pedro Morales practicung an act that was to span 3 generations of his family. He was the top mounter in this act, eventually known as Pedro & Durand, then when Durand retired and Pedro's son was old enough to work, Pedro Sr. became the understander for his son, Pedro Jr., and the act was known as Pedro & Pedro, aka The Miamians, Pedro Jr. later became the understander for his son.
