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!

CIRQUE D'HIVER #16:HORIZONTAL BAR ACT

DE VASSILIY STOLIAROW TRUPPE.
Having seen this type rigging many years ago on the "Ed Sullivan Show", I asked one of the men if they were related to the earlier act. He replied that they were not, they saw a movie of the original, that no longer existed, & recreated it.

A really great collection of photos from Cirque D'Hiver. What a beautiful looking show.

I'd like to own that poster of the lady and the tiger too. It is beautiful.
