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!

BARBETTE GIRLS #2



These two photos are of the Dutch number used to introduce Foot Juggler Supreme, Miss Loni, who is from Holland.

Attesting to Barbette's passion for details, notice the girls have on authentic wooden shoes, which the wore through the whole dance routine.

In the top photo are, Dorothy Pina Yerkes, Penny Wilson Rodriguez, & Doris Verdu,(later married to Frank Galambos).

In the bottom photo are Joyce Taylor, Brenda Jones, Ilonia Fredonia, & Penny Wilson Rodriguez.
