My wife Tiki was with me on

1 of my visits to the Rhodins

in Malmo as shown here in the

same ring barn as seen in #3

"Cirkus Rhodin" but this was

1996 with Trolle only a year

before he died

Great fellow and I'm pleased to say friend. He loved the history of the circus and was proud on his ancestry. Chic, do you have his autobiography published some years after his death? While in Swedish, it's filled with photos. Almost 2/3's is about his Ringling experience. He tells the true story of how the Felds acquired Circus Williams. I don't read Swedish but a friend in Europe translated portions of it for me. It is still available from the publisher. I remember spending hours with Trolle (some of it on the beach in Sarasota) as I recorded his recollections of circus life. Vivid memories!

Yes Dick I have that book in Swedish

It was published while he was alive

Maybe you have a 2nd printing

He gave me a treasure trove of his

memorabilia on a few of my visits

including family history & several

items of show concessions stuff

Ingeborg & Trolle & my wife & I

enjoyed many dinners in Venice &

the Sarasota area over the years

The Felds originally leased many

of Circus Williams elements long

before aquiring them years later
