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 worked with the lacey troupe on sells and gray in the early 60s-- by then daughters Dina and Susan were in the act. Really nice pople with lots of class, and the rigging looked sky-high in our tent. the crowds loved them. at the end of the season, they moved to beatty to beef up the show for new orleans, and they were awesome

FYI:
Lucy is still alive and kicking, now in her 90's in Las Vegas! She still assists Mr. Tihany, (they both were originally from Hungary)which she has acted as his secretary/assistant for years and still has her office in her bedroom according to Herb Ueckert who visits her when he is at home in Las Vegas. Jan & Bill Biggerstaff see her regularly too, and as much as she wanted to be in Sarasota for Mr. Tihany's induction into the Ring of Fame, she decided her traveling days were over. She is still a Grand Dame in every way!
