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!

Dear Mr Strong,
First of all congratulations to this exciting and wonderful Blog. I got to admit that your and Mr. Woodcocks Blogs are the first websites I open at work in the morning. I am a German modelbuilder, currently living in the US and working on a model of the late Circus Williams (1967-68). I was very excited seeing Mondays pictures of Mr. Gebel-Williams and Mr. Beautour and was wondering where you got these amazing snapshots from and if your source has more. Mr. Beautour worked his leopard act at Circus Williams in 1967. I would appreciate a postive response to marco_kristen att gmx.de . Thank you very much. P.S.: I still remember your wife's great tiger act with Circus Krone. Sincerely, Marco Kristen
