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.
This shot was taken on the circus lot in Aachen Germany. The lot is located in a nice residential area of the city. It is completely fenced and has a large paved parking area and a bus stop. The three center-pole tent to the far right of the big top is the circus restaurant tent. The long wagon with the windows next to that tent is the doniker. The single-pole top to the left of the doniker is the display tent for the new Volkswagen “Caddy Roncalli Edition.” (The “Caddy” is a minivan and VW is one of their corporate sponsors.) The square tent to the left of the VW tent is the “front door” tent which houses several concession stands. The two center-pole tent to the left of the big top is the “back door” tent.
