The Ortons

17072939427_6787680660_zI believe that the Orton’s came from an old circus family. I know of their name,  but never met nor work with any of the family other than Tex Orton who may be related to them. All of the Orton photos came from Doug Price. This gentlemen gave me permission to put them on the circus blog. Many thanks Doug.
