Sells and Gray - 1974 - # 1
The Sells and Gray Circus was based out of Deland, Florida in the 1960s and 1970s. The Sells and Gray photos are dated without you even knowing it. Whatever the number is on the Annual tour, is the year. The 74th annual tour is 1974.
While I was out on Circus Kirk, my dad was photographing the Sells and Gray Circus.
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.
