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!

ANDERSON'S TEXAS WHITE HORSE TROUPE

I could go on posting photos of the Andersons, doing Roman Riding, Chariots, Garland Entries, and even a WHite Wedding Carriage pulled by some of their beautiful Albino horses, but here are some of them with their Liberty Acts.


Hofmeister's Liberty Mules
The mules are being worked here by Jo-Ann in Kansas City, 1962.

Don & Joanne are retired but their daughter Staci, & their son Austin each have their own show.

I don't have an average life span but I have seen horses perform into their twenties.

Seems like some JACKASSes have been around forever. Hopefully some one will build another act useing these animals. Like making a silk purse out of a sows ear. Lots of beautiful harneses with the presenter wearing formal ball gowns. Really high tone. Or go the other way with straw hats on every animal. Performer wearing bib overall.bare foot with a corn cob pipe in her mouth. Throw in a couple of cute piglets. WALLA
