YESTERDAY'S TOWNS

HOWDY, MY NAME IS BILL STRONG, I'LL BE YOUR "24 HOUR MAN", ROUTING YOU INTO THE PAST TO SEE WHAT THE CIRCUS WAS IN DAYS GONE BY. IF YOU'RE LIKE ME, AND MISS WHAT IT USED TO BE, THEN COME ON ALONG AS WE GO DOWN THE ROAD FOLLOWING THE ARROWS BACKWARDS, TO "YESTERDAY'S TOWNS"! IF YOU HAVE CIRCUS RELATED PICTURES YOU WOULD LIKE POSTED, SEND THEM TO,,,,yesterday1@verizon.net,,,,AND WE WILL TRY TO FIT THEM IN. "24 HOUR MAN" WILL HAVE THE FINAL DECISION ON POSTING.

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!

USING YOUR HEAD #11: THE UNUSUAL

Now here are some acts who decided to do things a little differently.

THE FRANCANAS
The circles added to these photos are to indicate both artists are revolving, I assume in opposite directions. The young man doing the Back Balance here is Gene Lambart, known to many in his later years as a booking agent.

THE FIELD SISTERS
The reason for the similarity in these two tricks is because both acts were created by Eugene Lambart Sr. The understander here is former Aerialist Fritzie Bartoni.

GENE CLARK

Wouldn't it be a lot easier to carry a Zippo?


KAICHIRO NAMBA
I would think some things could give you a headache.


AND THE REALLY UNUSUAL!!

BLACKIE BOWMAN & ENA
Or just be a pain in the neck!
