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!

RIPLEY'S CRADLE ACTS

These were on some snapshots that have been around here for quite some time, a sticker on the envelope reads Norman Schular, Spfld, Ill., and are dated 1971.The first two of them seem to be photos of illusrations, & the tricks they are doing prompted me to add the "Ripley's", as they are definately "Believe It Or Not". I know they did some great tricks in the past, so it is possible they are real.

Photo #3 on the other hand is an actual snapshot of a couple doing some very dangerous tricks reminicent of the famous Rotry(sp?) Bros. of the Ringling Show.
