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!

QUASSAR'S QUIZ????

WHO IS THIS GREAT TEETERBOARD ACT?


I once saw one of the members of this troupe do swingtime double backs on the trampoline until I lost count.

Frank Clark says,-- This looks like "The Freddie Troup"---Piefka was top-mounter-- later married Brenda ( not girl shown)--Piefka was the one who did swing-time doubles on the trampoline--

Frank hit it right on the dot, and the trampoline act we both referred to was The Freddies "2nd" act, The Haslevs. It consisted of a long trampoline with a stand-up catcher at each end. Piefka, (second from left), was the feature performer in both acts.
