Clyde Beatty-Cole Bros. Circus - ( Hal Guyon Jr. )
Good friend Hal Guyon Jr. made the 80 mile trip to Rock Hill, SC to see the Clyde Beatty-Cole Bros. Circus as owned by Johnny Pugh and Doug Howadel in 1988. Here are some pictures from set-up that day.
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.
