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!

SHOWFOLKS FLEA MARKET # 3


I'm not much of a Poker player, does three of a kind beat a full house? Here is John Herriott, Buckles Woodcock, & Roy Wells, I think I know who that is behind Johnny, but am not sure enough to say, I'm sure someone will tell me.

The gentleman standing behind Johnny Herriot is none other than Al Pilz, who used to head up the flea market. He was an old time medicine show man and in later years one of the best concessionaires in the biz. He passed away a fews years back and he was one of the most comical people I have ever met...

Thank you Lauren, Frank Curry & I both at first thought it was Hub Hubble but reconsidered.
Trudy says the girl in the purple dress is Sandy Doriski(spl?).

When you see a photo like this, the term Living Legends, comes to mind.

To the best of my knowledge Roy began his career with " Jungle Larry Tetzlof" not sure of spelling.

That is correct. Roy started at Jungle Larry's, Tetzlaff. A lot of people got their start there in the 70's. Roy, Pat White, Wade Burke, and many others.

Dan H., Sorry to interupt your question to Darryl, I believe Pat is in Japan, working the Clubb mixed act. I'm glad she is back working, it's where she belongs!

Yes thank you Bill. Pat spent a year helping at my compound and had an offer to get back in the ring. She is indeed working with the Clubb mixed cats second to John Illig also a Jungle Larry alumni. Pat is also working a hoofstock mixed act of zebras and a giraffe.
