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!

I recognise Wally Ross with the Elephants and Eddy Steeples with the bears. But who is Maria Bauman ?
That arena and globe look familiar, Lilliana Christiansen ?

good morning mr. dean:
Just got off the phone with Lilly, she bought the act from Maria after she worked a season wth Ian Garden. She said most of the props were unusable but she did use the arena & globe. Maria lived in CA, but Lilly doesn't know for sure where she came from, possibly Eastern Europe.She said her husband walked with a cane but does not know why, Maria died, about ten years back & her husband before that. She was found dead in her trailer and the authorities had a hard time getting in because of the woman's German Shepherd. They notified Lilly because they found her picture & some correspondence, from her. End of story.

Thank you Bill, I believe that arena and globe presently reside at the Kay Rosaire coumpond
