The Beatty Show before the stripes

Likely in the 70s

Roger Smith said...

Me, I never did cotton to those stripes.

Chic Silber said...

Only the 1st few were "cotton" Roger

Then the stripes went to vinyl

At least they were all conventional

rounds with square middles

"Our" kind of big tops Roger

American 4 pole 3 ring circus tops

I guess sadly we will never see the

likes of them again
