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!

DOWN MEMORY LANE # 5

I remember this one,,,,,,,,,,I think! Hadi Temple Shrine Circus, Evansville, Indiana in 1970. Where did that 37 years go????

FRANCARRO & ESTRELETA and THE PHAROAHS
Frank & Ruthie Clark and Trudy & Bill Strong
I first met Frank Clark on the Orrin Davenport Circus, in 1956. He was working in The Noble Trio, Parallel Bar Act, & I was working in The LaBlonde Trio Aerial Horizontal Bar Act. Some other acts on the show were, Clyde Beatty, Klauser's Bears, Owens & Johnson,(Horizontal Bars), Francisco & Dolores,(Perch), Helen & Buster Haag,(Chimps),

These were the days of great aerial acts---acts that did real tricks and looked great doing them. Ruthie Clark did one of the best heel hangs I have ever seen.

How lovely all the acts looked and the wardrobe was something else!
Everyone looked so elegant....
I'm a tad old fashioned and I really find some of today's thong type costumes amusing;especially when watching the web girls climbing up the web... LOL

fatima, I have been commenting on those "THONGS" for a couple of years now. I call them the POLE DANCER Wardrobe. Hurts my hinny just watching them. To me the more wardrobe on the body the better. Cover every inch with sequines/buggle beads/feathers/etc. To me you are there to how off your talent and style to the public. Not your hind end. Strut your stuff with class and style.

Just read the thongs opinions, I also agrees with Fatima and Rebecca' to me the thongs are great for a bulesque show but never were they intended nor looks apropriate in a circus. beside any derierre will looks better with out a thong ask any artist or sculptor.
