YESTERDAY'S TOWNS

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!

LIKE MOTHER, LIKE DAUGHTER: THE HERRIOTTS








Here are three generations, Mary Ruth Herriott, with just two of the Many Animal Acts she has done, & top to bottom are her multi-talented daughters: Laura, working a Mixed Act of, Camels, Horses, Llamas & Zebras, also has a Dog Act,and works with Elephants & Liberty Horses;Then Laura's Daughter Jennifer;who is equally proficient in the ring working horses, Dogs, or with Elephants ; Heidi, seen here with Einstein The Educated Pony, she is also a Ringmistress(showing her Father's influence) has also worked Dogs , Liberty Horses, with Elephants & Single Trapeze; Cindy, with her Mixed Act of Camels, Horses & Llamas, has also worked Dogs, Liberty Horses, with Elephants, & did Cloud-Swing; & Christine"Wiener" with a Six Pony Drill, also has works as a Ringmistress, has a Dog Act, and she and her Husband James Plunkett, have their own Circus. Now if all that ain't enough to make a Mother proud!!!!

Don't think for a moment that what you see here is all these Mothers & Daughters do, most of them are so multi-talented it would take days to describe the versatility of each of them!
