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!

DISPLAY VI
CHESTER "BO-BO" BARNETT
I can still see him sitting on an elephant tub between the rings, bathed in blue spot lights, playing "Peg 'O My Heart", there's a memory that will never fade!

Someone's got Bobo's Firehouse props up on eBay right now.

I'd love o get them but the price is too rich for my blood at the moment and...tell me how I'm going to pull off a Firehouse Gag working by myself?

Ain't it the truth!

Once a producer wanted Dime to do the Baseball Game with three clowns.

It is a shame how they have wiped out clowns, I'm sure you've heard me say before, at one time Detroit used 35 "professional clowns".

I've been watching to see if they get any bids on those props, those leather helmets are worth a few bucks alone.
