Mel Hall

Posted By on July 5, 2012

It is true Mel Hall was a sensation, but you had to go a long way to catch up with Phil Bonta Jr. He did it all on the unicycle.

Thanks Carol for your comment. Not just because we were good friends, Donny was the GREATEST.

This is what is known as a double flying act. There are two catchers in the center of the rigging. This to my knowledge as seen here is the only photo of this flying act.This photo was shot in the very early 1950’s, might be late 1940’s.

Baby Bull Act

Posted By on June 30, 2012

It’s a baby bull Jar-go. NO hay, no water, no shovelling. Now why couldn’t I have thought of this kind of act. This photo had no name on it, just a date of 1954.
