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!

E. E. MEREDITH'S "SHOW BOOK" FOR 1916

This book must have been the "Bible" for the entertainment industry of Chicago,"Digest of Dependable Information", it's 130 pages, in no way even begin to tell it's usefullness, it tells you everything except who's in the audience.

CHECK OUT THAT PRICE!!


HOW MUCH DOES THE GIG PAY??
Harold Voise taught me about "pro rata" on Polack Eastern in 1955, I took a job working Aerial Bars for $150 a week, & made $110 a month for 2 months, I only stayed 2 months.

NEED NEW PROPS??
Anyone remember Van Wyck, their swivels were one piece cast brass.

STAYIN' OVERNIGHT????
