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!

~LIFE ON THE ROAD~

HERE'S A SIDE OF OUR LIFE THE PUBLIC DOESN'T SEE. OF COURSE IT'S HARD TO BELIEVE THE VEHICLES OF YESTERYEAR COULD MOVE FAST ENOUGH TO CAUSE THE FOLLOWING SCENES, BUT THEY DID.

Moving fast enough wasn't the problem back then, it was being able to stop. And unlike a wagon where you could use a drag shoe to use going down hill, these trucks with the mechanical brakes would heat up and fail. It would be the 30's before most carmakers changed from the cable-operated mechanical brakes to hydraulic brakes with Ford becoming the last to change in 1939.
