Oh how I wish I had digital back then. Nevertheless it has been one of life's greatest joys and blessings to know and photograph the Woodcock family in and out of the ring.

We stretched show biz history a bit with that entrance... no medicine man had a wagon pulled by an elephant...especially a small African like Amy. Thanks to Paul Gutheil there is a wonderful archive of photos of those great years.

Never let historical facts get

in the way of rewriting circus

history or splendid productions

"stretched" is a kind saying

Historical (or PC) presentation

is often dry & stodgy
