Helane

I believe this is Helane Hendricks who was the wife of Eddie Hendricks. If this is so, the last time I saw her and Eddie it was on the Siebrand Circus 1955.

Jimmy Golf on the left, Don Ray on the right, two fine circus musicians.  Jimmy played the drums, Don on the Hammond Organ. For just two guys they made a lot of music……… They were always there if a performer was in trouble.

Here in this photo is Harry Clark and his horse, Long Journey. The circus started out with 3 rings and center poles for aerial rigging, there was no […]

Kayletta

Kayletta joined the Siebrand Bros Circus in the mid 1950’s. Her high pole aerial act was exceptional. She did every trick in the book and finished with a slide for life. I had a great deal of respect for her. Kayletta was a single lady and would set up and take down her rigging by […]

Bill Woodcock Elephants

Siebrand Bros Circus 1940’s

| August 24, 2011

This is a very rare photo of the Siebrand Bros Circus. I am guessing that this photo was taken just after 1945. At that time, they had a six-piece circus band. Through a magnifying glass I could only recognize Mr. and Mrs. Clark. They had the dog and pony acts.   This photo is part […]
