Sparks Circus and Damoo Dhorte
This one photo was taken May 13, 1946 in East Liverpool, Ohio. The cages don't have very big wheels to be on the ground. For this to be a truck show, some serious loading on to a truck each day had to occur.
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.
