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: THE ERIKSONS HAND BALANCING ACT



These are two very early photos of the Eriksons, possibly taken before coming to the USA.

In the top photo left to right are Hans, Karl, & Steve.

In the bottom are Steve, Hans, & Karl.

For many years the Eriksons had a big Mobile Home & Trailer Park on Highway US 41, south of Tampa, since it was closed years ago, Mother Nature has reclaimed the property, and all that's left is the driveway.
