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!

NINETTE THERON PARKER'S SCRAPBOOK OF MEMORIES #3

RINGLING BROS. CIRCUS 1951
Here is cast & crew boarding the plane to an engagement in Cuba. See how many people you can identify, I see Jimmy Armstrong down front, & Les Parker in the dark shirt, ninth from the right in the back row, and that sure looks like Bill Horn(Scamihorn)in front of him.


RINGLING BROS. CIRCUS 1946

Right front is Edith Wallenda, & looking over her right shoulder is Evelyn Theron


RINGLING BROS. CIRCUS 1948
Second row, right side, is Flo Theron.
Third row left is Conchita Morales Erikson


RINGLING BROS. CIRCUS 1946
The young lady in the front row, right side is Evelyn Theron, mother of Ninette Theron Parker.

Sure enough--Jimmy Armstrong, with Frankie Saluto just right of him. Possibly show exec Michael Burke on the ramp with his elbow on the railing.
