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: FROM THE PAST, THE HODGINI FAMILY

Now that I have everything back together,(by the way Thanks to Lee Ketchum, & Alafia Computers in Riverview), I'm going to start by jumping back almost 80 years, to The Sells-Floto Circus in 1929. These are from the Wilson Family album, they are all of the Hodgini Family, Bareback Riders, I'm hoping someone out there can come up with some individual names because nothing is marked.

Wasn't Ted the youngest?? Never met them but heard stories and saw other pictures- unfortunately not around to compare faces. cc

The two fellows are sons Tommy and Joey. I believe all these photos are Downie Bros. Circus. Note the horse truck, Floto was a railer. Dime was no doubt with them on both shows

inohoo, Thank You, yes, the Wilsons were on Downie in '28, & Sells-Floto in '29, & possibly into the early '30,s.
