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!

HAZEL KING #5: 1929 RINGLING BROS. CIRCUS CONT.

Onward & Upward, if it wasn't so much work I would turn this whole series around, I sort of rushed into it instead of prepairing it ahead of time.
As stated before Hazel was with Ringling in '28 & '29, the following are some others on the show at that time.

CLARA CADONA

From Roger Smith,Clara, here, was a Codona sibling. Not be to confused with Clara Gron, who married Afredo Codona. When Lillian Leitzel surveyed the situation, she moved in on Codona, and Clara Gron Codona was moved over, reportedly bought off by Leitzel for the then princely sum of one thousand dollars. Leonard Farley tracked her down, but Clara kept her silence to the end of her days in Cincinnati, Ohio.

EDNA LeCLAIR
If the name sounds familiar it's because Edna is the mother of Jackie Le Claire.

PEGGY MURRY


MARY LENNETT


BOBBIE WARRINER


DOROTHY
The only notation on the page this photo was on was Dorothy RB

MYRTLE COMPTON
Myrtle was the daughter of Wild West performer Cy Compton, I think this photo would have created quite a stir in those days.
