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!

The picture looks very familiar...I think this beautiful lady was a Zachini or a partner in one of the airplane acts years ago...Did Bill & Trudy present the airplane act in later years?

You're all wrong except "whitetiger" about Trudy & I presenting the Kimris act, we did it for 18 years.

I've added a hint that will surely give it away.

P.J. knows who it is!

Idlewilde Amussement Park in Legonier, PA always hired retired Circus performers because they knew they would always get the job done. The last time I saw this gracious lady, she was in charge of the Kiddie Rides.

Some other illustrious employees there were, Bob & Wally Fisher, Nellie & Bossie Dutton, and Roy & Neets Deisler.

mickey was a great person as well as a great performer. i've always been impressed with how much she always did everything she could to help other performers, particularly when starting out.
