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!

MEMORIES: FROM RICK COBB, OF OSPREY

Rick is the one who sent me the great pictures of Henri & Vera Kimris doing The Kimris Act in the Late '30's, & early '40's. Rick lives in California but returns to visit his father who lives in Osprey in the house he bought from Simmy.

Bill,
Peaches and Simmy were two of the nicest people I had the pleasure of knowing. I met them in Parkersburg on the Tom Packs dates in 1958, I was a small kid that couldn't get enough of it. We remained friend for years. Another example of an act that you will never see again..took to much work. Truly in a class all their own. Thanks for the memories !!!
