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!

OTHER HIGH ACTS AND UNUSUAL RIGGINGS

THE APOLLOS This was a fairly common type of High Act rigging, a single pole or ladder with rigging on either side, & one or more short Swaypoles on top.

THE BARRETTS I wish I had a view from a little further back to show more of this rigging, as I remember it was a two people act.



THE CONNELEYS This is a very unusual combination, on top seems to be a loop the loop, but a single pole rather than the usual frame. The two hoops remind me of a later act done by Cimse's daughters called "The Sils Sisters".
