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.
I saw one of the last shows that King Bros had in Newberry, SC. I don`t remember the year but I know it went into the barn shortly thereafter and didn`t come out the next season.
What year is this ? I saw King Bros. in California in 1964. I think it was the only time any of these Acme Corp. shows played the west coast.
I'm guessing that the tractor cabs in the next photo are like the ones the Beatty show was using in the 1970's.
The trucks are probably Chevy`s although CBCB had a couple of GMC`s, pretty much the same tractors.
