On July 6th, 1944, there was a horrific fire at the Barnum and Bailey's visit to Hartford Connecticut-a tremendous circus fire that injured or killed several hundred spectators.
My mother, who was just about to give birth to my sister Kathy asked my father to stay home even though the tickets for my two brothers and older sister had already been bought. He did. The Ringling Brother's Barnam and Baily's Circus was banned never to return to Hartford. So, I grew up only dreaming about what a circus could be.
At thirty years old, I attended "The Bombay Circus". I was mostly charmed by the elephants lunching as they swayed to and fro to the loud Hindu music. They were really frolicking. A good memory.
