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!

Great pics thanks for posting. The Enos Parch act was great with small Mary basing the Parch with Gene who after performing would slide down the parch to stand on her head. Mary was a heroine who saved Gene from death after a train accident during which he was injured and pined down by a beam. The strong lady lifted the beam and carried her unconscious and bleeding husband despite the fact that she was injured herself. She even managed to cross a fence with him on her shoulders. They sure do not make 'em like they used to these days.
