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!

This is Irv Lang with his Teeterboard Act of the '50's, Beverly, third from the left, we all know now as Mrs. Rudy Rudinof Jr.

THE DEL OROS
This couple did a Revolving Ladder as The Del Oros, and a Low Wire Act as The Platinos, I feel like I should know them, but can't remember a name.

Bill, Checking out your website, I found the photo of Ray and Yolanda. Does anyone know their where abouts? I would like to touch base with them. Last I saw them was when they were with Johnny Pugh on the Cole Bros, Circus. Thank you.

I am sure someone told me they were living in Sarasota???
I remember this act from years ago, & then working with them later on Castle.
