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 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!

FROM PAUL GUTHEIL: THE WALKMIR TRIO

This is a great poster of the Walkmir Perch Act, when they were a feature act on the Ringling Show, I hope to come up with a year.


They later built an Airplane Act, "Aida, The Star In The Moon"

Hello Bill: Is this the same rig that was later used by Celeste or was Celeste's a different rig? It sure looks like the rig Celeste used or at least is very similar!

Neil:
This is the same rigging, in fact for a brief time after acquiring the act Hennie kept the "Aida" name, then changed it to "Celeste".
