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!

FATIMA BRAHIM, YOU ASKED FOR IT



Penny said you wanted to see The Flying Marilees, so to double your pleasure, here is a snapshot from her scrapbook, & a publicity photo I ran last June, of Lee Stath, Mary (Atterbury) Stath, & Roger Miralles. Mary by the way is the sister of Bob, & Bill Atterbury. This was one of the great Flying Acts of the 1950's.

I remember these guys from my childhood. I was a 12yr old in 1965 when these good people came to South Africa to tour with our family circus, Chipperfields, for a season. I remember Roger fondly, always a fun person - what became of them ?

THANK YOU!!
We were on the Hamid Show about a 100 years ago, Penny will remember the date...Mary & Lee became our best friends...they are doing fine...we keep in touch by e-Mail...don't know where Roger is.
Mary was one of the most beautiful lady flyers of our time.
Those were the real Golden Years..
