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!

SNAPSHOT: SAY! WHO IS THAT MASKED MAN?


And how come he has his arm around my girl friend?
Now this is not the same Lone Ranger Buckles had on, that was Lee Powell, this is a later model, Clayton Moore, who did the part in the TV Series, and I think in some films. I'm a Gene Autry man myself, really my favorite of all were "The Range Busters", Buck Jones, Tim McCoy, & Grady Hatton. This photo of him with Trudy was taken in Harrisburg, PA in 1959, on Hamid-Morton Circus.

You are right, it's Raymond Hatton, I was also wrong on the group, The Rang Busters was Ray "Crash" Corrigan, "Dusty" King, and Max "Alibi" Terhune.
