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!

TRAVELOGUE #3: THE CNE GRANDSTAND MATINEE

This film was a long so I had to split it in half, I'm not familiar with any of the acts except for the two balancing acts. The first is Pedro Morales Jr. working with his father's understander, Durand(sp?), & the Head to Head, is Pedro & Durand.

Take a good look at the Barrel Jumping Act, it was already on the "endangered" list in the early 1950's, and I'm certain will not be seen again.



There seems to be two seperate Trampoline Acts, my guess is the first one in Red, White, & Blue, are The All American Boys.
