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!

KRONE KORNER: KRONE ELEPHANTS




We haven't been over to Circus Krone for a while, so here's a look at the Elephant Act being presented by Banda Vidane,(I've heard many Elephant Historians say that Banda's father did the first Head Carry, on Ringling in 1928).
The first picture is a little fuzzy, could be from the spotlight, they seldom come up that high, what I liked on Krone was most of the light stays in the ring where it belongs. You would think as long as we were there I could tell you how many elephants were in the act, they do a lot of going in & out so it's hard to tell.
