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!

TICKET WAGON CHECKS

I call these, "Ticket Wagon Checks" because they were used to pay local merchants and were redeemable at the ticket office at a time stated on the check on show day for purchases & services such as,,,,

ADVERTISING
Permission to put posters on buildings or in store windows.



TRANSPORTATION

Rental of teams to carry the Billposters around rural areas.


LOT RENTAL
A place to set up the show.




SUPPLIES TO FEED THE PERSONEL.
Ten barrels of flour will make a lot of bread!



FEED & BEDDING FOR THE ANIMALS.
Click on the contract & read the terms presented to the dealer by the show.
It costs more to keep them than the people.


AND WATER FOR BOTH
LOTS OF WATER!!!!

Hi Bill:
I wonder if the check for flour was for the advance to make paste for the bill posters???
