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!

This is, indeed, Old Chicago. I appeared there when the place opened with the F€lying Ferrias (sp?). It was a great concept, I think, but not very well executed. So many years ago, it is hard to remember who was in the entertainment area but I remember Walter patterson (The Amazing Mr. Bell), the Patterson family trampoline act, Miss April with the sway pole, a clown magician, and there may have been other acts at the time. The place was very bland - not a lot of visuals or color.
By the way, the roller coaster track in the photo is part of one of the first installations of an Arrow Development "corkscrew" coasters, the first of the modern inverting roller coasters.
