#7 Circus Execs


Cindy Potter said...

I am familiar with the original photo...there's "more" than meets the eye!!!

Chic Silber said...

These 2 gentlemen deserve the greatest respect

They were the only ones that mattered to me out

of that original photo from way back then

Thanks for noticing Cindy

Terrific observation, CINDY. To paraphrase Hitchcock, it's what doesn't meet the eye that tells the story. If some of us know why this is creative cropping, it's very close to knowing where the bodies are buried. Which means some of us can look at this and smile.

All the best wishes and hopes for NED in his recovery from this morning's surgery.

For those few who may not know

Wilson Storey & John Pugh

Wilson (Willy) Storey's daughter

Reneé carries on her father's

tradition as a circus executive

for Branchwater's Cole Bros Circus

She has my greatest respect as well

Chic Silber said...

Willy found & booked talent for all

the Acme Shows as well as for others

including Jimmy Harrington's "Gran

Circo Panamericano" in Puerto Rico

He was the General Manager of a few

Willy had come from France with his

uncle (or cousin) Alfred Court

Chic Silber said...

John (Johnny) Pugh has become

a legend in his own time as

the owner & producer & director

as well as the savior of the

venerable "Cole Bros Circus"

My Alma Mater (so to speak)

I first met both Johnny & Kenny Dodd

when I was a 1st of May in early 61

I consider them my good friends today
