Always had a terrific traditional big top show. I clearly remember Rex and Ava Williams and the elephants.

1 married the canvas boss

Roger Smith said...

The stand-out canvas boss on Vargas was Frank Pealer (Peeler--sp?), who wasn't the marrying kind.

Chic Silber said...

I knew Frank Pealer very well

He is the brother of the DeRiski

3 sisters & he held the GM title

He also had a semi snake show

Victor Arata was the canvas boss

It was Victor that had been with

Ingrid (who is now with Roland)

who then married a Vargette
