Red Show Rehearsal #18 (From Jim Cole) (CONTINUED)


Roger Smith said...

Every time I see a wheel, or such derivations thereof, I lament that Johnnu Luxem did not patent his wheel when he perfected it.

Jimmy Cole said...

Johnny Luxom did not invent the wheel. It was Clay Beckett.

Chic Silber said...

Both Johnny Luxem & Leigh Heisinger

had beautiful & more delicate wheels

I recall seeing them in the late 50s

or early 60s but my very favorite

was Elvin's original "Big Bertha"

the baby blue sleek (but very heavy)

single ended wheel of steel (that

was later replaced with a matching

replacement of aluminum) & he did

a fabulous routine with it

Chic Silber said...

Jim please give us some captions for

your rehearsal photos w/ act names

john goodall said...

Billed as the "Wheel of Steel". Don't know who they are.

Chic Silber said...

A fairly clunky device with not much

design style & far too much going on

What's with the guard rails (reminds

me of training wheels on a bike)
