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 #3 ON A TRAPEZE

Now we take the Head Stand up in the air, on a trapeze bar & add some risk to it.
SENOR ANTONIO
I guess it was inevitable that the hoops would follow.

JAMES IRWIN
As the Col. says, "it's all been done before", this is 100+ years ago on the Barnum & Bailey Circus (1905)!

LAGANA
Lagana was actually the Sensational Single Trapeze Star Fritzie Bartoni, seen here doing her Head Balance on a Lyre rather than a Trapeze.

THE ODORRS
Altough I have seen numerous photos of the person doing the Head Stand holding someone beneath the bar, this was the only photo I could find.
