"There's no Business like Show Business". This is an opportunity to share and present Circus History with others.

Used on the Ringling / Barnum show in the 1940's, I've been told these two units were used inside the Big Top driving stakes for the riggings and props as well as helping on some of the smaller tops on the lot.
I performed from 1973 to 1995 with a couple years off in between. I did an aerial cradle act for three years, low wire as a clown, trained llamas, ponies, then lions and tigers for 15 years. I am now a firefighter, a member of the Circus Historical Society and an author of several circus and carnival related subjects.
