This is the same calliope as below. It was known to be on the King Bros. Circus. This shows the obvious modifications being made back in the 1950's. At one time this calliope was owned by CHS member Mr. Fischkorn. ( I hope I spelled his name right )
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.
