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!

AUT-MORI CIRCUS #2
AUT-MORI CIRCUS #4
JUST A SNAPSHOT: ROLLING GLOBE ACT
JUST A SNAPSHOT: QUASSARS ROCKET SHIP
This is only the second picture I've found of the rocket when I finally got the look I wanted. I merely shortened the wings from the Saber jet, & added the original wing rockets, the only problem was it became very tail heavy, so I added weights to the nose for counter balance. I wonder why the stakes on the outdoor rigging pulled??

BYRON GOSH CIRCUS
We're going back down the road a ways to a couple small shows, no pictures, no frills or big production numbers, just Circus, but I'm sure the folks in these little towns didn't care.
First we're going to Newport Tenn. for the Byron Cosh Circus, no date on this one.
This ad appeared on the last page of the program, By Gosh also produced Rodeos.
