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!

TRUDY WILSON STRONG #2 A LITTLE BIT OF THIS & A LITTLE BIT OF THAT

During these times Trudy also managed to sandwich in time to do her Contortion Acrobatic Act, Web & Swing Ladder, Single Trapeze, & working with The Flying Malkos, The Flying Victors, & The Flying Wards.

TEXAS TRUDY
Trudy & Penny both worked with Texas Tommy aka Klondike Karl, he didn't just have them flash the act. he also taught tham to work with the animals. I think this is about 1956.

JACK JOYCE LLAMA HITCH
Here is Camel John Rouche,(sp?) leading the Llamas in spec on Hamid-Morton in 1957 with Trudy at the reins, she also drove them around the back yard just for pleasure.

THE WARD BEAM WHITE HORSE TROUPE
In 1961 Trudy & Joanne rode with this group in Detroit, & Minneapolis, doing "No Hands Bareback Jumping"

TRUDY ON TOMAH
There was a small town a couple miles down the road from the farm that asked if we could contribute to their 4th of July Parade so Trudy & Joanne took Joanne's two High School Horses. This is Trudy riding Joanne's Morgan Stallion Tomah.

CRUELLA DeVIL
Here is Trudy as the evil Cruella, from "101 Dalmatians" in Disneyland's Christmas Parade. The parade marshall in charge of our unit was a young man named James Gray, seen here walking in front of the truck, he had to constantly remind Trudy to not smile, that's not easy for a Circus Girl!

The white dogs on the steps look like lab mixes here. Their ears have that flappy look.
