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!

SWAY POLE FROM THE PAST: HARRY FROBOESS "THE SWAYING MARVEL"

I found this little poster on ebay, a great addition to my collection of, "Daredevils", "High Acts", & "Sway Poles", the pole seems to be quite unique for that time, with such a long swaying section, & only one set of guy lines. I notice he also did the head first slide, in case you can't read it, the date is 1938.
