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!

~BILLBOARD MAY 1, 1900: DEDICATED TO ALL THE "FIRST OF MAYS" WHO JOINED OUT IN THE SPRING,,,, AND STAYED THE WHOLE SEASON,,,,THE REST OF THEIR LIFE~
This is a little late, but I had intended to post each full page, the problem was getting them large enough to read. So I had to back down & change to what you see here. Little interesting tidbits of an era few of us remember,,,,gone forever!
I have fun trying to restore old damaged photos and this one was a real challenge. It proves I don't do faces.
