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!

HAZEL KING #11: OUT TAKES

These are some extra photos from Hazel's album some are Circus related some are not.

TOM EWALT
When Parker-Watts went broke Tom acquired the spotted Liberty Horses, but he is pictured here with a group of Sorrels, trained by Milt Herriott, Johnny's father.

LOU BARTON
Lou's brother George was the father of Cloud Swing Aerialist Billy Barton.

RUDOLPH VALENTINO


ADMIRAL RICHARD E. BYRD
This is a rather common sketch of Adm. Byrd except for one thing, it's the only time I have ever seen him sign his whole signature, everything else is signed R.E. Byrd.

JACK DEMPSEY
Rather an odd inscription I think.

There are also many pictures of her dogs, she was obviously very fond of them , the date each one passed away is noted under their photo.
