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!

SNAPSHOTS: BACK LIGHTING




These photos really don't have anything to do with anything except, as much as I hate tower lights that shine in everyone's eyes, I like pictures like this. The top one is one of the Stallions on Trudy's sister Linda's show, "War Horses Of The World", the second is Circus Krone's Lyla,(the lady on the tusks is Banda Vidane's wife Dagmar, and the bottom photo of The Pharoahs, was 1st prize in a Shrine Circus photo contest.

We had a local band called the Pharoahs--are these people in the picture you and Trudy???? How many acts did you do?? How many different names did you use???Why I ask is the guy on the ground looks a lot like you , and if that's Trudy, is the hair real?? -- ya,ya , I know, she's really a blond -- what was this act ???

Hey Jim,
This is the Cradle Act, the first act we did together, yes the hair is all hers. We worked this act from '63 thru 78, then replaced it with the Dalmatians. We started working the Airplane Act, which was already named The Kimris Duo, in '64, in '74 we changed the Jet to a Rocket and renamed the act The Quassars, we retired it in '82, and replaced it with the Liberty Act.
