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: VAUDEVILLE MEMORIES#1, FROM RICK COBB

These photos are of Circus Acts working on the Vaudeville Stage, dates range from 1916 to 1920, & they were in a larger group of Vaudeville photos sent to me by former Sarasota resident Rick Cobb, who is also the gentleman who sent me the great photos of Henri, & Vera Kimris.


THE AMBLER BROTHERS #1 1917

THE AMBLER BROTHERS #2



THE FOUR BARDS
They look like acrobats to me!


FRANK CARMAN, HOOP ROLLER
I can't wait to hear from Bertha Nonenmacher Campisi regarding this act, she was a member of The Wilfred May Trio, and has done research on this type act.


THE JIM BLACK DUO
