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!

FROM OUR NIECE KIM SUE IN ALTOONA

JAFFA TEMPLE SHRINE CIRCUS
Due to the limited floor space the Elephant rides are inside the cat arena. Is that a rocket I see in the air, that type act always looks good in the Jaffa Temple dome.

This is a notoriously small building, we did the date for Howard Suesz one time, and the aerial acts were, The Pharoahs Cradle, Michael, & Michelle Hanging Perch, The Roselle High Wire Act, The Flying Palacios, & The Kimris Airplane Act.("Believe it or Not")

I would love to! But my shoulders and knees and back and no callouses won't let me. I am now the artist formerly known as Tavana! I sure did miss being there last year,too. Hope you are having a good season. How crazy was all that weather with Billy Martin?

KIM SUE: Altoona loves you. What a job she did. The Wilson Family would have been proud of Kim..We were...By Friday evening the remaining seats for the fifteen shows were gone..The box office had to remain open for all the ticket buyers...Seven days and fifteen shows...Altoona is the Shrine Circus to work and not a bad seat in the house...My hat is off to STRUPPI HANNEFORD for a job well done.
