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.

Location: GIBSONTON, FLORIDA, United States

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!

Barry, Shelaagh, and King were among the finest showfolks I've known. I so enjoyed them on the Beatty show, 1980-1981. My deepest sympathies in their loss of this good and great man.

Mr Sloan was ever so helpful and encouraging. I had contacted him when I first embarked on my second childhood as a stilt performer. He shared several photos which I posted at StiltWalker.com in the history sections. I will be collecting and posting additional photos and stories
in the near future.

Rest in peace and thank you, Barry.

Knowing him made it worth being here.....that certainly says it all. He had a big heart, a great smile and great sense of humor. Always a pleasure to be around. Barry will be missed so much. Rest is peace sweet, gentle "TALL ONE". God bless your family at this time.
